I recently spent some time out at my childhood home.   My great-aunt’s property, it has housed nearly every one of my mother’s siblings at some point or another.   I spent the first 8 years of my life in that house and nearly ever summer there after.

I’m so excited to finally have the Live Oak Tree Prints for sale. They’re available in three different treatments, Icy Blue and Moss Green hand watercolored prints, and archival black prints on Natural paper.  All are hand-signed, and though they are listed at 5×7 inches, I can certainly print 8×10’s or even 11×14’s should you fancy a larger size.
