TREE - HUGGER ME



Please come and look at all the creative art at
the Paint Party !



 My oil painting
is called Evergreens








I made a new canvas tote bag design 
I used a photo I took last summer of my backyard shade tree
I really do love trees
 so I guess I'm a Tree-Hugger
available through my cafe press shop

I really enjoyed your painting. I see many different things when I look at it. At first glance I thought it was a willow tree. It also kind of reminds me of a peacock from a distance. Then I looked closer and saw pine trees. Great painting!

Love the tote bag too!

Your painting is really beautiful. I love all of the colors and how they work together so peacefully yet still send out a great deal of energy. Hope that makes sense.

This painting makes me think of looking up into a dense canopy of leaves when the breeze is stirring and watching all the movement.

Hi Morti
thanks so much for your nice words. The painting of the bride is from a photo of the Cincinnati skyline looking from Kentucky side of the
Ohio River into downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The building on the far right is the newest structure built there (Great American Ins building)
Called the Queens tower because it has a brilliant crown effect on the top.

The bridge is very old and built before the Brooklyn Bridge which is very similar it is called the Roebling suspension bridge.
I am so happy you like it..my impressionistic style isn't for everyone's artistic eye. so I do appreciate the people who like it too.
