This piece evolved from a series of trees inspired by Klimt's "Tree of Life." The whimsical form and organic branches play across the canvas adding an exciting sense of movement and joy that one experiences from the feeling of love. Just as two people become one in a relationship, this tree expresses the concept by it's divided trunk only to unite in the center through branches forming a heart.
