Sweet Memories ... for the kids who grew up climbing her, the sweethearts who shared their first kiss on a picnic blanket in her shade, the grandma who tells her grandkids of the time grandpa asked her to marry him under her canopy of shade; the tree herself remembering all the people she brought joy to.
There is always a tree, a bush or other plants that seem to be hanging somehow while the earth around them seem to erode. On this painting, I wanted to illustrate this by showing the tree rooted into a falling hill. This watercolor is rich in texture and the decaying hill is very detailed. Created with watercolor and acrylic ink.
