Two tree themed paintings

This months Girls just wanna paint's theme was my pick- and I chose "tree" as my theme. I am not sure which one I am going to put on it…the top is acrylic and modeling paste - the bottom one is watercolor.
The red winged blackbird tree is on the creek where I love to kayak- across from my house. I like to go up creek- away from the river and boats- to a special tree that is him to many go of these beautiful birds. Once a meadow, the creek was created by the North River and is now a lovely lush marshy place, filled with dragonflies and other creatures, to paddle. It's meaningful to me so I think I've answered my own question! The watercolor goes on the group challenge blog- check it tomorrow to see all the other trees!

Alice's House

Alice's House was on Humarock beach, and was a non profit house where families affected by cancer and other diseases could gather and enjoy the ocean. I spent couple weekends there with close friends and most memorable was an evening with my childhood friend Kate DiSantis and her family- she passed a month later. Alice's house burned to the ground in a terrible fire a couple of years ago. This was a commissioned  gift to Janet Gibson, the amazing woman who founded the non profit.
