The tree is a live oak that has taken a bow down to the ground. We planted it the day that we brought our oldest son home from the hospital, who is now 35 years old. For a few years, it didn’t look like it was going to make it but now it is thriving. It is an evergreen. The children love to climb and play on the bowed down branch.
It also makes a great “sitting” for taking photos.
This is a view from my front porch during a rain storm. I love the rain. If you look closely, you can see rain falling. When it rains, I love to sit on my old country front porch in the swing and just watch and listen to the rain falling.
I painted this picture basically from my imagination. I wanted a picture with lots of colors. Again, I added leaves for my husband. But not too many so that the detail of the trees still shows through. I have not drawn or painted in a while now. I need to get back to it. The pictures that I have painted on my iPad, print out beautifully. I have framed a few of them.
I painted this picture of the tree at the lake in the winter, on my iPad using ArtRage. It’s amazing what you can do on an iPad. This is how the tree looks from the balcony. See the Spanish moss clinging to it?
My husband says that they look like they are on fire, so I decided to name this painting ‘Trees on Fire’. I painted it on my I-pad. He also asked me why I always paint dead trees. I told him, they are doormat, not dead. I like the detail of the limbs, but after his comment, I added leaves. 🙂
Again, I painted this on my ipad. I wanted lots of colors so that is why there are so many colors. I like reds, for a more dramatic sunset look. I also blended some blues into it for more design appeal.
I love trees. I take pictures of them at every opportunity I get. I will be sharing some of my photos with you. I hope you enjoy. This is a picture of a tree that I took at sunset in the neighbors yard.
