New Tree Of Life


It seems like every few years or so I am inspired to create a new "Tree of Life".  This time for some reason I chose faces... I was thinking of the past generations sleeping while they wait for the New Jerusalem.  Come Lord Jesus, Come.



This was my "Tree of Life" in 2011



I'm not certain why I did two trees in 2007, one (the top) is my crazy tree of life, and (the bottom) is my "Tree of Life" with all the different fruits.

The "Tree of Life" symbolizes something so precious that we often take for granted.  It is a gift from God and when we accept His Son into our hearts we become apart of the Family of God which is blessed to partake in the fruit of the Tree of Life.  So beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I'm off to celebrate my son's 17th Birthday.

Hugs and blessings

Kelly - This is really beautiful! It is neat to see the different trees of life and how you have grown as an artist through the years. I particularly love the idea of the saints awaiting the New jerusalem - Maranatha!!!
