Blue Tree

November 22nd, 2009

This morning I played with blue ink, colored pencil, and a bit of paint to create this tree.

Thank you so much for all the love and support you all sent my way in response to losing my Grandma. I feel the love and so appreciate it.

I may not be able to get around to visit as many of you as I'd like this week, so if you could each visit a few of your fellow Art Every Day Month participants and send an encouraging word their way, that would be wonderful!

Leah, This painting looks as if you painted it with your tears. I’m glad you are taking time for you… and we will keep supporting one another as you have taught us.

You continue to inspire, Leah.

Thank you. :)

I am sorry to hear about your grandmother’s passing. Losing a loved one is always difficult, but she lives on in you, and in all that you create, too.

I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother. Your blue tree painting is lovely, and hopefully cathartic. Take care of yourself during this difficult time.

This is a beautiful piece, Leah. In many ways it reminds me of you and your lovely heart.
I think that trees are so stabilizing. They hold the earth beneath them and support life in their systems.


I’ve passed an award on to you. To read about it and learn the rules, come over and visit.


Sorry, I’ve been away and didn’t hear of the passing until I was reading the other comments on this post.

I’m sending you lots of love and care,


This is beautiful. I love the free flowing nature of it. And the blue is really soothing at a time when you need it.

I love your art, is so airy and flowing.
Hang in there, hugs,

I love this piece. I’m glad that you are still creating. Sometimes that is the best thing we can do for ourselves.

Sending Love and Hugs out to you.


I am so sorry I didn’t comment sooner about the death of your grandma. I didn’t know until just this moment. I can feel the depth of your emotions in this piece. What a blessing your presence was in her life, Leah. I am so very sorry to hear this news. So sorry. Prayers.

this blue tree is beautifull lots of emotions

This tree is so flowing yet strong and beautiful. Sending you love as your heart must be feeling a bit blue.

Blue Tree has the feeling of sadness.
Grief appears to me within the circular designs.

I’m curious about the geometric rectangles @ the very bottom.
Everything else is dreamy w/ swirls….except f/ the straight lines under the tree, which look like stitching of some nature ( ??? )

This is stunning, really stunning.

Hello Deat Leah!

FIRST…. I want to say that you have been in my thoughts often! I’ve missed you! (and Tammy too….but I have totally lost touch with her and where she is at)

It’s been a busy year, and i haven’t had the time to play in bloggy land much!!! It’s sort of frustrating to be so behind and to think I may have lost some wonderful connections!!! I am going to try to get back to it more in the coming year!

I hope all is well with you!!!! Please drop me a line sometine!
