Artist Mel Davis utilizes the texture of wood to compliment her painting in the tree ring design series called Tree Rounds. Not focused on detail and intricate patterns, the artist covers each tree trunk slice with a wash of color that instantly gives a facelift to the wooden canvas.

She then adds some elements of design such as a contrasting border, paint splatters and shading to add dimension to the pieces. The organic, rounded shapes of the paintings as well as the empty space, makes them seem like windows that are facing cloudy blue skies.

Hanging the decorative tree ring design series on the wall would add an artistic and natural element to any room.
