I didn't realize I hadn't up loaded any photos of this, I've just been so busy! 
This painting was an absolute delight to paint, as usual it grew from something entirely different, it began as a cloud painting and became a tree ! Then words of love and encouragement appeared in the sunlit roots, so strange how my trees seem to have a life of their own!!
As the words appeared I felt they were all things you would wish for those you love,

As I painted I kept thinking "my wish for you is"... Love, strength, happiness etc.....

'My Wish For You'... a wishing tree

When I get back into my studio I'll definitely continue to paint words into my work.


sunlight shows up the words

beautiful words began to appear...harmony,happiness,safety
over the days it grew

turned itself into a tree

started as a cloud painting

Beautiful new Koi painting SOLD

I painted this a few months ago but as you can see I haven't posted in a while.
I'm so busy with life and renovating the house
 there just isn't enough hours in the day or days in my life!!

Close up showing details

Hanging in my front foyer the day I took it to Annas
I was very tempted to keep it!

 it changed shape and colour many times

Very bad photo of the finished work,
I'll try and take a better one later

wip man in the moon

Funny thing about painting trees they take on a life of their own,
this started out as a branch reaching into the painting, it grew into a spooky tree with bare branches and has finally found itself with softly flowing moonlit leaves.
I've put in the Southern Cross and still want to add a few little details, should be finished and for sale in a few days.
