Fun, Quirky and Addictive!  Yes, Tree Bark. Don’t you think that the Simple things in life should be enjoyed more?!

The bark textures have a rough allure that pulls the eye and makes the hands itch to touch these living sculptures.

The Ancient.   The lovely red tingle tree has magnificent textured bark and a sculptural form that was utterly enchanting.

Red and Lunar Black Bark


These trees, their shapes, their ‘skin’  the bark protective coverings  delight, fascinate and tantalize even the nonchalant.

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at society6.com/debiriley and, redbubble.com/people/debijriley/shop

      1. That’s not greedy, that’s love for beauty. Took a ride with my bike today to a field full of crocusses, really beautiful. Have a nice day, too, cheers Mitza

      2. It was so nice yesterday, found some nice old houses/ an old church, old doors, a very old car, some crocusses etc. The world can be wonderful sometimes…


    1. good morning Nia!! I’m glad you are enjoying these. I always feel like trees have a lot more depth and layers hidden beneath the surface, (ok, thats an analogy, I am sure! LOL) but still, trees are just so lovely. Thank you Nia, and I hope you have a great rest of the week. Debi
