Throwback Thursday Trees

folk art tree watermark

It is hard to believe that it was only a short 3 1/2 years ago that I decided to start shifting my craft business to more of an art business.  This watercolor “folk art tree”  is one of the first “real” pieces that I did.  Because of that I have adopted it as my logo of sorts.  I think it is interesting that while my style has evolved some, and I have shifted to primarily mixed media, there are certain features, of my trees especially, that have remained.

I enjoy putting prints of these pieces in old window panes… always a hit!
