Some of you have already seen my newest surreal tree art.
(well, the mostly completed version of it anyway)
I thought the tree looked kind of "floaty". I went back in and gave the back ground some details to help ground the tree image.
If you are wondering about the canvas, well it is not one I could easily replicate. This was a yard sale find that a friend picked up and passed along to me.
The decorative elements were already attached to the canvas and a...ummm, well lets just call it, a print, with some crackle texture for effect. Yeah...not really my style, either!! I decided to keep the edging and see if I could use them to my benefit...
As I was stacking this piece with the others, I realize that I am getting closer to my goal of having enough of these pieces to do a show. Cool. Of course I would not mind one bit, if someone out there wants to buy one or a bunch of them!!
