11 X 14 Trade

Dana (who was my Secret Santa) & I decided to do a larger tree art trade... This is the one she did for me. She used Shin Han professional artist watercolors and graphite on Canson Rough 120lb watercolor paper. My request was for an old, kind, wise tree so it has irises (which are a flower representing wisdom), and uses the symbolism of the Hermit Tarot Card (who carries a lantern).

Dana wanted a blue, purple & green tree. We are learning a series of ruched flowers in quilt group this year so I embellished it with small 3-dimensional ruched & beaded flowers.
