One More Tree and a Lonely Mermaid!



















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!

You can delete my old blog now if you like, it will be removed in a week or 2 i'm only using it at the moment to remind people to shufty over to the new blog, it might get a tad annoying for you if you keep getting those updates ;)
