Do you love trees? I am captivated by every stage of their development. I was Inspired to create a series of mini paintings for the Uxbridge Studio Tour. They are based on an arbor I saw at a chateau in France this summer. Two of them are 8 × 10, one is 8 × 8 and the smallest is 5 × 7. All are painted on stretched canvases. I used R& F paint, string and a bit of burlap.I love texture.
