Trees have always been an important part of my life. My grandfather worked among the majestic mountain ash forests in Victoria. My Dad loved trees and the birds that lived in them. My Mum taught me the word ‘silhouette’ by pointing out the silhouettes of trees in a sunset.
My artistic fascination with trees began during my artist in residency at Mountain Seas Resort on Flinders Island. Since then I have been capturing the rhythm and shapes of the melaleuca trees in many different ways ~ watercolour, oil pastels, even fabric. My latest art works are a unique mixture of watercolour and sewing with the sewing machine.
Each is an original work of art, and all works are for sale. Some through Anne Lawson Art, my Etsy shop, or by contacting me for more detail. I am off in the caravan at the moment and have put my shop on holiday too. I will be back at the end of September, so use the contact form and I will let you know when the shop has opened.
These oil pastel and ink trees are 8 x 6 inches/21 x 15 cm (A4 sized paper), on either watercolour or Khadi paper. Each costs $45.00 (plus postage).
