Family Trees & Homes
Illustrated Family Trees
When the Broyles family approached me to design their tree while incorporating natural imagery, an idea was planted.
The combination of honoring family and nature at once thrills me. Let's get started on your tree...
The artist composed a design featuring the unique cold spring on the family property. A branching pecan tree organizes the seven generations with the suggestion of other branches that continue off the paper. At the foot of the Pecan lies the elaborate tomb of the first generation who migrated to this new land. In the other corners are a liberty bell and angels from the family cemeteries found on the property and in the town of Vienna. Spear points, Long leaf pine cones, cotton and sunflowers give hommage to the heritage of this land.
Wildlife depicted include a Barred owl, Kingfisher, White-tailed deer, Red fox, Wild turkey, Pileated woodpecker and Mourning doves.
