Tree of Life for December is one of 12 paintings each depicting a tree for every month of the year. Each painting is made on a heavy hand made paper using a variety of media. This painting was made using water colour, ink and earth pigments, the snow flakes are collaged and the sun is embellished with 24 Carat Gold and the Moon with Pure Silver. All of the Tree of Life works are painted within a mandala, a sacred space of geometric pattern.
The December Tree depicts a bare tree in Mid Winter. Mistletoe clings to its’ branches and forms part of the pattern in the mandala that surrounds the work. The snow falls gently onto the hillside and brings with it three ships, floating down to earth, and all the while a snow hare sleeps beneath the tree.
All of the Tree of Life works are available as Signed, Limited Edition Prints. All hand embellished with 24 Carat Gold and/or Pure Silver. Printed on museum quality paper using archival ink, mounted and framed in bespoke solid oak frames.
