Description The Remembering Tree is an acrylic painting on canvas.'The Remembering Tree holds the memories of our loved ones, who have passed, safely in its nurturing boughs and deep within its roots. If we sit quietly, we can experience a tangible presence of our loved one, an enlivened and visceral memory, perhaps even a familiar scent...by opening our mind and heart, and allowing our imagination to connect with their essence through the symbol of their lantern. Each illuminated heart-light holds the collective memory of a loved one. The Remembering Tree sends us dreams of those we miss, by day or by night, when we need them most.'~ Christine - In addition, if you're interested in unique merchandise with my Remembering Tree art on handpicked note cards, journals, calendars, home dcor, jewelry and more, visit my Skylands Studio store: http://www.cafepress.com/skylandsstudio
Christine Kenton, Orange County, California Member Since November 2014 Artist Statement Hello and Welcome!
I've been creating art since I was a child, when creativity seemed to be a natural extension of who I was. Decades later, and two art degrees under my belt, I'm coming full circle...discovering my unique voice and style through painting, as a form of self-expression.
I've become a certified expressive arts facilitator so that I can assist others in finding and expressing their own inner artist and creative-self.
In my personal work, I try to evoke a sense of magic and mystery...a sense of beauty, wonder, and imagination...as expressed through images found in nature, and in the everyday.
I hope you enjoy what you see, and that one of my paintings finds a special place in your home, and in your heart.
Thank you for visiting my gallery store! http://christinekenton.imagekind.com/
