My Second Tree Painting - Surprise... Surprise! LOL



Late this afternoon I decided it was time to paint another painting. So I got out my paint gear, my acrylic's etc., and went at'er. I told my hubby I felt like painting another painting and he said, "Well, it's about time!" I smiled and went to work. He does support me very much and I am truly blessed with such a wonderful hubby. I saw a tree like this in a picture of a mural that someone painted on their wall, I wanted to paint a swirly looking tree and dress it up a bit. So... as my habit is I put in another 'chick'flick and painted my own rendition of the picture I saw. I like my vision much better because the other one was rather plain. I sponged the background with sea sponge. When I had no colors on the tree my hubby said that it looked like a painting from "A Series of Unfortunate Events"... I couldn't have that! I didn't want it to look gloomy, so I added some color to it. Yep, much better!
Happy creating everybody!

Kelly, your trees are creative and communicate more than just a "tree". I always come back to them.

Thanks DC;
I do love trees. God continues to draw me back to them over and over again, I think it's because it represents life in so many ways... the foundation, the roots, how they soak up water to nourish the entire tree, how they bear new fruit and leaves each year, how they are renewed each year. All so beautiful.
