The Tree Of Life


Well, this isn't exactly the holiday design I mentioned in my last post. I often get side tracked and I'm glad. I started this painting early last week but was going back and forth working on my holiday card design and also a commission and feeling frustrated. Friday after a hike with my husband in the deep woods, and a little inspiration from my hero William Morris I was able to finish. This is my version of the "Tree Of Life" seen so often covering the walls in beautiful rooms. This painting is also a companion piece in a way to "Birds In Paradise" a painting I completed in the spring. 11x14 for sale in my ETSY shop.

It's gorgeous. When I first saw the photo, I thought, wow, that would make a stunning wallpaper pattern. Just beautiful.
