Well, I have one last tree to show you. This one is the fourth and final tree in the series, it is called "In the Tulip Tree". My parents had one of these at their old house and the grandkids liked to climb it and pick the flowers.
The next photo is the very abstract trees my preschoolers made with construction paper and wadded up tissue paper. I really love how they turned out! It was the inspiration for my series of trees!
The other painting is called "Lonely Mermaid". She looks very lonely, I'm not quite sure why. I don't know if she traced the heart in the sand or if seeing it just reminded her of how lonely she was...
Both of the paintings are on Ebay right now. Sorry, but the construction paper and tissue trees will be going home to the mommies of my students! Have a "springy" week!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
