Interwoven trees

I adore trees.  I know, it’s not a surprise at all, but I do want to make that really clear.

With that on the record, I have an admission to make.

I do from time to time consider the ways in which I can make my beloved trees … marketable.

So, in one of those cold-blooded, “somewhere someone will find this adorable and buy it on everything” moments, I came up with the idea of drawing two trees next to each other, with crossing branches forming a heart.

I started the drawing and it was, indeed, adorkable.  I sent a phone pic of it to my partner, who told me to stop there or it would be too much.

I didn’t listen and kept adding, putting in the little swirls that I love about my older tree doodles.  I am now wondering … is it too much?

    I really like it. I think it may be a teensy-tiny bit “too much”, but only maybe. If it’s a digital drawing, maybe you could make several versions, from not-quite-enough up to whoa-way-too-much. That could be interesting.

    Then you could do a poll!

      I’ve been thinking about trying again to do some directly digital drawings, but this one is just a scan of a paper drawing. I do like working on paper, but they’re a bit less tweakable. :)

    Oh, I LOVE the trees……beautiful! Not over done at all, just perfect.
