Since today is National Arbor Day, I want to encourage you to plant a tree!
I created my tree collage by painting Canson Mixed Media paper with inexpensive watercolors:
I was inspired by Cat Bennett in the class, Making Art A Practice – In and Out of the Sketchbook to create my tree and this collage of flowers in a planter by cutting out simple shapes from paper:
I love the simplicity of the shapes in these collages. What do you think?
My husband and I planted this tree in our yard last Sunday – it is an European Larch:
It will be beautiful in the fall.
Happy Planting! 🙂
