Gum Tree

This particular original is sold, however I have various sizes of similar gum trees (most under 10"), and 5" x 7" original cards as well as a reproduction of this particular image on a 5" X 7" greeting card.

When I'm in Australia I always paint the beautiful gum trees. I love their unique trunks and light that falls on them through their thin foliage. At sunset they glow sometimes--and that's another painting to be made, for sure!

Using the ink into wet colour produces some amazing results. I love the flow and texture you can get with this technique.

Most of the gum tree paintings are smaller images and available for $10-$20. The cards (reproduction) are $4.
