Four Seasons Tree

4seasons tree

from The Four Seasons Tree

This was a commission for a friend.  It is a gift for a family that recently adopted a little girl from China.  The idea was to represent each of the four seasons, with the words: "through every season may you:  Imagine, Believe, Love, Laugh."  The words are all on the inside edges of the painting; a hidden message.

The maple tree, a symbol of Canada was a must in this painting. 

Materials:  Acrylic paint on 4 separate canvases.
Status:  Gone to a good home.
