Tree of Serenity
Inspired by nature and the gently lapping waves of Tasmania's Coles Bay. I remember the serenity so clearly while drifting in the huge expanse of aqua and smelling the cool salty air. The tree in this artwork is filled with words on the leaves to remind you to turn a new leaf when you need. I used Lemon Quartz Crystals to make it look like the sun is shining through the petals. This painting was started in 2007 during our year-long trip around Australia and completed in 2017 for my 25th anniversary of being an artist, so officially it took 10 years to complete.
