Nice picture!

This is just endearing! Love

I love trees AND turtles, so this is my favorite of all your amazing works!

Wonderful, congrats on your sale!

Congratulations on the sale of your art, may you continue to be successful!

Fantastic work, Frank. I'm somehow reminded of Mark Ryden (the Tree Book in particular) however your style, technique and concepts are very much original and unique. Beautiful work that really stands out to me.

I'm in awe! Love all your work! Outstanding creations, voted and fav almost all of them, your fantasy is out of this world! Huggies

Thank you, Glada. I am glad you enjoy my art!

I have written stories about the treetch, but there is not just one children's book that they are all created for. This particular painting was actually created to enter an art show which had a theme of "turtles".

are all the tree character from the same children's book? this one seen to be amazed by the turlte! vf

Marv Sample, Thank you very much for your comments. I am very honored (especially after you looked at 800 different websites!) that you chose two of my paintings to be in your bedroom theme "thinking of Africa". I have put a lot of myself and my emotions into these paintings and I am glad that those feelings reached out to you. If you'd like to, I'd love to see a photo of the "thinking of Africa" room when you are all done creating it.

Mr.Dixon I love interior design and right now im doing a bedroom theme called ( thinking of africa); After 800 diffrent websites with everyday day paintings for $$$$$$$$$$$$$. Upon looking at your painting lightning head my husband said (hes thinking) i was laughing at it becaause of the hair-branches. usually he doesn't help me do anything then he called me back again and showed me another one of your paintings,By looking at these paintings it brought us together, and at the same time gave me an idea put them in with the african theme theres nature and diffrent parts of it and diffrent feelings and sites of nature and then there really pretty also i will be buying them as the paintings for this theme thank your for these trees

Thank you Cheryl. I have fun painting them.
