trees have been my fascination since last summer. i seriously can't get enough of them. this is just a fun painting, not necessarily any deep meaning behind it. i wanted to do something a little different, that's why the village scene is inside the tree instead of the other way around. i was given a bunch of colored felt, so i have glued a bunch of it into this painting. some people thought that that was funny to use felt because it reminded them of the church felt boards that they used as a kid in sunday school.
