Titled "Tree of Life", this original pencil drawing features a variety of woodland animals in and around a tree. This is one of a series of drawings that I have done using the outline of my hand as the basis of composition. The pencil drawing measures H - 10 3/8" x W - 8 1/4" and is on smooth white paper. Drawing is unmatted and unframed.

The trunk of the tree is the palm of my hand and the tree limbs are the fingers. In the drawing are an owl, a squirrel, a woodpecker, a bird's nest with baby birds, a raccoon, a grasshopper, a lizard, a turtle and an opossum. Working out the compositions for the "hand" drawings (I will be listing more of this series) is a bit like working a jigsaw puzzle - but it keeps my attention and allows me to include various textures and small details.

If you purchase a drawing, it will be shipped (free) protected by clear archival film - sandwiched between cardboard and boxed for protection. I generally will not mat or frame 2-d artworks so that the buyer can mat and frame the work to suit their taste and decor.

Please note that I only ship on Thursdays because I live in a rural area (20 mile round trip to the PO). If your purchase completes (payment received) later than 1 PM (CST) on a Wednesday, your item may not be shipped until the following week.

If you purchase more than one similar item, I can usually combine and save shipping costs.
