Maple Seed Watercolour

When we moved in to our new house, a friend saw our maple trees and shared an important family memory she had of maple seeds. She bought a home and is moving in this weekend, so I knew exactly what to paint for her housewarming gift.

Framed watercolour is impossible to photograph!

I saved a seedpod from our tree and studied it when painting. I painted three prototypes and returned to this fourth painting several times before I was happy with it.

Since love and time are what make toys real in the Velveteen Rabbit, I’ve decided that what turns mediocre art into ‘real’ art is all the love poured in.
