Handpainted Tree of Life Artwork

Lorilyn from A Crummy Marriage created her own artwork by piecing together three pieces of leftover wood for her “canvas” and mixing and diluting house and acrylic paints.  After a lot of layering paint colors and sanding, she ended up with this natural piece of tree art for her mantel. Her freehand drawing is pretty amazing to say the least!

Handpainted Tree Artwork

Lorilyn was inspired by the Tree of Life Framed Art from Anthropologie.

Wow, her version is a thousand times better than Anthro's. Superb!

I had this painting bookmarked as one I wanted to attempt in the future. I am glad I haven't yet because I am loving how she did this on wood. Gorgeous! I love her version better than the original :)
