Artists and their Trees

Regardless of who you are, how old you are, or where you live, don't we all share a love affair with trees? Artists are no different... and I see trees influencing the work of artists in every medium, across the continents. Here is a sampling of amazing work, all created by members of the PieceMakers, inspired by trees!

 "Little Bit Country!"

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow!"

" It hangs in my bathroom now, and has been washed with a gold paint over the grout."

 "The central Tree / Goddess figure is in different shades of brown, black and gold. Her arms, hair and branches stretch outwards and upwards, holding all the elements of the four seasons. Spring has dancing butterflies, daffodils and small millefiory flowers, while the branches of the tree are blossoming with beads, more mille and delicate green buds. Summer is full of vibrant green swirls, with added beads and even some jade in there. Autumn (Fall) has seven bright red apples and the leaves of the tree slowly turning to bright oranges, reds and yellows. And finally Winter, with icicles and snow covering the naked branches and the ground beneath her feet. Around the edge of the piece I added symbols for the three phases of the moon and the sun.

The face of the Goddess herself is wise and serene. She looks out of the picture calmly, with her feet/roots firmly anchored in the earth, keeping perfect balance, while all around her everything is in constant movement and turmoil of the changing seasons."

... and also by Frances Green is this amazing work-in-progress bathroom mural!

"After going through my photos for this blog post, I have determined that I am very inspired by trees! Their endless, ever changing beauty, the stories around them, the life they give.... just to name a few things. These are a few of my favorites. :) "

"You are my Sunshine", an ode by Frog. A magnificent oak tree in full fall foliage, acorns, dancing flowers, and the biggest sun ever on Frogs final days before hibernation."

Joanne Paquin

"This is a series of stained glass panels that I made for my sun-porch. The Four Seasons Tree.... Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. They are visible from the front of my house and bring lots of bright cheery color into that sunny room during the day."
