Tree of Life for January 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, including Lapis Lazuli. The sun is embellished with 24 Carat Gold and has a mandala painted with pure Shell Gold, the stars are Pure Silver. All of the Tree of Life works are painted within a mandala, a sacred space of geometric pattern.
The January Tree depicts an old evergreen tree, the symbol of everlasting life. It stands firm during the hardest of weather and stands out against the Garnet sky, a colour chosen as Garnet is the gem stone for January Birthdays’. The snowcapped mountains seen in the distance provide a perfect back drop to the elegant tree. If you look closely, three animals are taking shelter 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.
