Got Trees on the Brain!

 Above is the first tree I ever drew.  From this tree I started my tree themed art journey.
 Above is the last tree painting I've done.  This tree was commissioned by my cousin for her friends wedding.
This last tree above is the latest illustration I did for greeting card publishers.  I added a crooked little house.

Today I was contacted by the president of this organization: http://www.soulfulgiving.org/home to participate as a vendor.  Free booth and everything.  COOL!!

So now I need to come up with new work. The one part I hate hate hate about creating the paintings is the framing.  I'm terrible at framing.  I make a mess of it.  I need to see about mounting the paintings on canvas.  I'm really nervous to try that new technique but I'll will give it a go...

I'm also going to try more collage elements in my watercolor paintings.

Wish me luck!

I truly love your style! Since the first tree can see how great artist you are :) And I understand you about framing, its like an art by itself, but can¨t escape it...

This is soooo cool! I love your style and creative flair. I've wanted to start art journaling and I hope to one day create my own line of stamps. Awesome inspiration

Your pictures are very great but if you attach bad frames they will become worse.
