Flowers Oriental Tree Flowers by Carol Ann

I painted this water paint. Same procedure as my one I did for my  daughter this one now  for my daughter in-law and son's  25th Anniversary as well. The card I painted this flower plant  on is 4x6 just brought up larger for to show.    I did paint them on this card. Over laid three times and blew dried them each time before adding paint.

Two of them apart  in two months Anniversaries.   I did this one different of course.Completely different.

It is the flower tree. In a potted stone crock.  Supposedly an oriental tree.  I put in two birds. One on the

 right with a long tail and the other left kitty corner top left .

I wanted something different  for each one of them. Yet I still wanted that raised look. Which I was able to do with this.

My son is an artist so it was really a puzzle pleaser being he is involved to see it too.  Ha-ha.

Well of course an Anniversary he cant very well be not apart of it.

So be interesting what he thinks.

It was a big challenge for me this one. I have never done  this kind of selection  . Of course I am a beginner here or should say. Hardly an amateur. Someone said they thought it was the Tree  of Life.

That is a lovely suggestion name. Yes, tree of life  to me being a Christian and my daughter in-law and son who would believe same. (Christ is the Tree  Of Life)


  1. Carol Ann, this is vey sweet. At first I thought it might represent the tree of life or something like that. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  2. Maggie that would be a perfect quote. Being the tree of life as the Lord. He is the tree of life. Amen.

  3. Carol Ann, this is really nice. I am sure they will love it!

  4. I really like the design this makes! Bravo!
