Single Tree with a Few Berries on it...

This is a drawing that I created a couple of weeks ago and that I sold a couple of days ago.

This drawing is 6 x 4 inches, which is a bit smaller than the last painting I created with berries.

I have a large collection of tree artwork that I created on Flickr.
Here is a link to it.

my Cobalt Blue Tree

This is my newest painting of an imaginary tree. It measures approximately 6 x 8.5 inches. And, I created in using gouache on paper.

This painting began as a cloud study that I created a few months ago. I looked at the cloud study a couple of days ago and felt it did not work. I decided the cloud study needed to include a tree......thus the Cobalt Tree was born. :)

most recent Drawing of three Trees

Here is my newest small drawing I created of 3 trees that are growing independent of one another, but near to each other.

Two New Paintings of Trees

Here are 2 recently painted renditions of trees. In each painting, there is more than one tree!
Who knows, perhaps I am at the start of a new direction for my work, in creating renditions of more than one tree.

What I do know, for sure, is that I continue to love creating single trees with different personalities. :)

I am very pleased with this drawing that I call, "Summer Tree."

The touches of green that I use in this drawing represent leaves to me in some way, even though the tree is bare.
I suppose I am very pleased with the tree's shape.

Under Mother's Watchful Eye by Nina Kuriloff

I call this drawing of mine, "Under Mother's Watchful Eye."
In this drawing the mother tree is very protective of the baby tree, who is her daughter.

The protectiveness of mothers towards their children is a universal theme.

tree artwork

The last few days have been inordinately draining, from an emotional viewpoint. And as a result, I find myself drawing trees. I just seem to find comfort in the act of creating trees.

My pens and paper are very portable. I am very grateful that this
is the case.

I have a 2.5 hour plane trip ahead and I look forward to working on a new drawing of a tree as soon as I am settled on the plane tonight.

New Bare Brown Tree

It's been awhile since I have drawn or painted a tree.
I completed this piece tonight and am glad I did.
I am very pleased with this drawing. I like its feeling of delicacy and the spidery shapes that are part of it.
I saw a tree on the way home from work that sparked my interest; this particular tree was the inspiration for this particular drawing.

Green & Pink and Surreal Drawing of a Tree

This is the drawing that I began working on, as I sat on a subway train for 45 minutes.
I continued working on it, while listening to the Clinton/Obama debate on television tonight.
This drawing is surreal and I think the use of color is psychedelic.

a new drawing.....

This is a new drawing, one that I created a few days ago.
The base of the tree is broader than my other trees.
Perhaps I would like to pay more attention to the roots of trees, in the future.

my painting called "Cyclops Tree"

This is my newest painting, that I completed tonight.

I was concerned about its asymmetry and perhaps being out of balance.
After mulling it over, I've decided that it works.

So, I tried to appreciate Palm Trees

I spent 3 days in Florida and viewed many varieties of palm trees.

I enjoyed viewing quite a few of them. The bark of these trees varies and is rather interesting. Also, I found the leaves or fronds of these trees to be attractive, as well.

Somehow, the shapes of Palm trees are not nearly as interesting to me, as the trees in the Northeast part of the U.S.A.

I really went out of my way to try and appreciate Palm and Coconut trees. My efforts were to no avail.

first drawing for 2008

This is my first completed work of art for 2008!
I started this drawing several months ago and decided to complete it.

It's a tree that seems to have spiders living within it.

I love bare trees......

I have always preferred the beauty of leafless trees. It is at this time that one can fully appreciate the shape of the tree's trunk and network of branches!

So many trees have exquisite shapes.

I could spend hours on flickr admiring photographs of leafless trees.
