Someone pointed out that it was christmas tree season – which had completely escaped my mind… decided to do something about it, instant-gratification style – although drawing/coloring/painting a 6×18″ sheet took a little longer then I anticipated – all fun time though. Challenging – I have a lot of mediums to work in – watercolors, oil pastels, markers, some random Korean ink, probably for calligraphy – but none of them had a real Christmas tree dark green.
I had a ton of fun thinking of a different pattern for each segment of the tree – not much pre-planning going on, just working as I felt. This would have been much easier as a quilt, in real life – but then I wouldn’t have gotten to create the patterns. Selection isn’t the same as creation (although much faster).
Alright, here it is: Christmas Tree 2010
I’ve been working on a number of Christmas presents – so for obvious reasons, those will be posted after Christmas.
