I started this painting with the full intent of having a red tree in it. That's all I really cared about when I started drawing this one out. Then I added in the color design for the old Hawaiian plantation style house and our weather-worn surfboards on the side. I love how relaxing "Relaxing" came out:) I just want to cradle myself on into that hammock and take a breezy afternoon nap with the sound of waves rocking my cares away.
