Autumn Trees and Leaves...

Weeping Birch Leaves
Oil on Canvas 6"x6"  PEP $30
On a walk with my little Chihuahua a few weeks ago we found irrefutable evidence that Autumn was coming in these few yellow fallen leaves. At that time the sun was still warming each delightful day. Then came last week and everything has changed. Since last Tuesday, we have had pleasant autumnal rain every day and a few wind storms. This morning started sunny and warm and has ended with soft rain and many leaves of every tree falling.

Oil on Canvas 20"x24"   Unframed $1250 Framed in ornate gold  $1600
Tree of Life images can be found in most cultures, times, and styles of expression. The ideas seem universal. In recent time, Piet Mondrian painted a series of wonderful tree interpretations which when viewed in chronological order as painted, give the viewer a greater understanding of abstract painting.
        My own "Tree of Life" is just outside my kitchen and living room windows. After I quite accidentally did a smaller version as a student demonstration, I really wanted to tackle this painting.
        As I have watched our family and others developing and branching, the imagery and personal interpretations have engaged my heart and mind.
        What do you see?
Thank you for looking at my paintings! I will appreciate your comments...
