Ancient Sequoia Trees

"Death is a low chemical trick,
played on everybody except sequoia trees."
J.J. Furnas

Ancient Sequoia Trees

5.5" x 7.5" original watercolor on Yupo paper, double matted to 8" x 10" - $85.
Quotes will be hand lettered and laminated to the back of the painting's matting.
mats -(acid-free/white core) with foam core backing, in an acetate sleeve

Ancient Sequoia Trees is #9 of my 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge
inspired by quotes about trees.

Thanks again to everyone for your feedback and enthusiasm for these small watercolors on Yupo paper! I am enjoying working on this synthetic paper, because I never really know how it will turn out. I put my marks down in ink first and then just try to go with the flow, letting happy accidents happen as they may.  Yupo pushes me beyond my comfort zone and makes me constantly stretch my skills.  I'm excited knowing that I'll be learning something new each and every day during this 30 in 30 journey.

And YOU help keep me focused.
You've given me the feeling that I'm on a good course with these
little trees and for that, I am truly grateful.

Thank you for stopping by!
