Tree of Life - folk art
Close up of blossoms - Tree of Life

Tree of Life – SOLD

I love the message of life, rest, strength, and longevity that the idea of trees evoke…and trees have an incredible range of imagery in my Christian spiritual roots. I collect images of trees from other artists, and they frequently find a place in any type of art I create!
This image was inspired as I was contemplating Revelation 22:2: On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
This folk art “Tree of Life” with 12 blossoms (representing the twelve crops of fruit mentioned in the Revelation passage) is painted on a gallery wrapped canvas with acrylics and watercolors over a collaged background of old Bible pages from the Psalms.  An antiquing glaze over the entire piece contributes to its “old” feel.  Hand written portion is from Proverbs 3:18 and says “Wisdom…is a tree of life to those who take hold of her…happy are all who hold her fast.”  The number “12″ has spiritual significance in our Christian faith…it represents healing, authority, and the body of Christ.  This tree will add a subtle witness of your walk of faith where ever you place it!
Size:  11 inches x 14 inches x 1 1/2 inches (deep).   Signed and dated on the back…Sides painted black and it comes ready for hanging.
There is a lot to consider and meditate upon in this piece!
