Oh yes, I AM a tree lover. My garden in Gauteng, South Africa is rich with trees, planted many years ago by my late mother. I love trees in the autumn when they display their beautiful colours. Trees make life possible because they use the carbon dioxide and release oxygen which makes it so that we can breathe. Trees are very important to the environment. The beauty of trees makes me feel peaceful, and inspires me to make the best of myself. I love to paint and draw trees…I can do it everyday! Pen, ink, pencil, waterpaint on 300gsm waterpaint paper.
