Not quite finished with this challenge. I decided to paint this tree from south Texas because it WAS so complicated. I am entering this in an auction for a charity that wanted trees to represent "continuous growth." This tree reminded me that like life, it is complicated. There are a lot of things in life that cling to us and twist the way we grow but the base of this tree is solid and strong. We can and are solid and strong for many and varied reasons but we can also support a lot of other people emotionally with our strength. Thanks to all who have and still do support me in my life.
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
