  1. You’ve created a beautiful tree filled with the welcome of spring.
    Leaves will sprout and birds will nest.
    Soon,we’ll feel the arrival of Mother Natures colors. ~~~ : – )

  2. Beautiful, delicate, radiant, vibrant, alive– a reflection of its creator, no doubt… : )

    It also looks suspiciously like me when I’ve shampooed my hair, and walked off without combing it. Hmm. Probably just a coincidence… : )

  3. Elegant emerald is what comes to mind, Marina, just lovely…♥

    Marina, this reminds me about the “tree of life” – have you heard about it …that is to be find in every culture has more or less. I just was an exhibitionist about in here in Landskrona. – that God let the tree grow so high that he could use it like a ladder to climb done to earth to visit us .. and we could visit him. Fantastic story.

    • Ah, yes, I am aware of this and all the stories behind ‘the tree’. Partly why I’ve chosen it for a theme. The tree symbolizes so many things. It’s amazing… I’m very happy you like it! 🙂 xx

  5. Such a pretty watercolor, dear friend!

  6. Dilip says:

    Ah so nice to enjoy your beautiful paintings again 🙂 Nice green it is the color of nature.
    Thank you dear Marina.

  7. Jess says:

    Emerald is one of my favorite colors! Good job!

  8. Emerald tree painted by a diamond that has left the rough behind.

    On another note, when’s the house warming party? Hope you’re new house is big enough to hold all your followers 🙂

    Super flowing shapes; I love it!

  10. Madhu says:

    I love the way you so skillfully mix colours Marina! The emerald tree is particularly beautiful! 🙂

  11. I love how you have created such depth with the watercolors without muddying them. Beautiful work…and of course my favorite subject….

  12. Your Emerald Tree is really beautiful and graceful, Marina. I love the colors. You have such a lovely talent!

    Another beauty tree Marina…works upside down too, with the branches as roots and the base as the canopy…

  14. sriramjanak says:

    Lovely tree…lovely art…just love this Marina..:-)..have a great weekend

  15. So lovely, Marina. Those restful greens are gorgeous. 🙂 Happy weekend to you. xx

  16. Lovely Marina, I am looking forward so much to when we will see those emerald buds back upon our trees in Spring.. Enjoy your weekend 🙂 Sue xox

    • Ah, me too, Sue, although our weather here is acting strangely this winter. We’ve had a warm month and many plants reacted like it was spring. I just hope we don’t get extreme cold or snow because it will damage them.
      You too, my dear! 🙂 xxxx

  18. Excellent stem structure!!! The Plant Morphologist within me applauds your smooth and steady hand!!!! (Mine always did shake a little.) Man, these are GOOD!!!! 🙂

  19. I’ve missed your talent Marina!

  20. Love your art – always super!

  21. Mary says:

    All those beautiful green shades of arms reaching up into the sky – has wonderful depth. Missed your lovely art, have a good weekend!

  22. deCamville Design says:

    Marina, this is beautiful! Very rich layering of the greens. I’m happy to see you back!! 🙂 ~xoxo

  23. fgassette says:

    Love this. It reminds me of a photo I have that I titled “Branches Reaching The Sky”. Your art work is excellent.


  24. aFrankAngle says:

    Love the fact that what seemingly starts as a tree turns out to be more house plant like. The greens are dark, but soft! Well done my friend … well done.

  25. Very impressive artwork.
