Hope you all have a safe and lovely Memorial Day Weekend!

It’s here!  The Southern Bride’s version of the Thumbprint Tree! A moss-draped Live Oak, (subliminal heart included), with plenty of room for your loved ones to leave their mark.  A modern alternative to the traditional wedding guest-book, that usually finds itself buried on a shelf.  So wish I had thought of this for our day!

Inspiration

March 8, 2011

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.

Perhaps this wallpaper mural in the foyer (circa 1978) has something to do with my Live Oak fascination?

a detail…

The camellias in bloom and the morning fog off the Vernon River welcomed me home.

Camellia Blossom

Enchanting, no?

 

 

 

Finally had the opportunity to start sketching  Ford Plantation Live Oaks!  I could spend a lifetime drawing inspiration from this incredible property.

Gateway Oak (or so I’ve named it)

Prints available in Natural, Moss Green, and Icy Blue

A few months back, I showed my work at the Hunter Spouses Club luncheon.  The new Live Oak series was well received…save one small request…”can you draw one of ours?”

This one certainly takes the cake for the most moss.  I should have it available for purchase sometime next week.  Until then, feel free to check out the rest of my forest over at theinklab.etsy.com.

I could probably draw a hundred of their oaks, but I’m sure a series of 3 or 4 is a good start…

Ford Plantation Club House

According to Mr. Waters, a Spanish Conquistador is buried in this tree…

He also suggested a hurricane from 1896 may have blown it over, along with another tree in the opposite direction.

Huricane Live Oak Ford Plantation

Gives me flashbacks (Halloween’s on the brain) to The Tree of the Dead from Sleepy Hollow.

The following I’ll refer to as Triplet Oak, three trunks all seemingly from the same root system.  Oddities I’ve only found here.

I can’t wait to start sketching!  Special thanks to Mr. Waters for a moment of his time, Kerri and Erika for getting me through the gates, and Tom at the front gate for mapping out his favorites.  Enchanting.
