My Tree Series started out with a simple painting, Maria’s Trees, which my daughter bought for her friend, Maria. I enjoyed making it so much that I decided to do another, and then another and another. Before I knew it, I had a collection of paintings of all sizes . This series has been the best selling of all of my work. Even years later, I still love painting them and get excited about creating another one. This is another area where I can explore my love of color. There’s no doubt that these are not painted in a realistic style.
