Tree Ring Paintings by Tracy Melton

We spotted these fantastic paintings on one of our favorite reads, of paper and things. Tracy, who is based out of Knoxville, Tennessee, uses the wood from dead Red Elm trees to create the discs that are then sanded and clear coated, and finally painted to highlight the rings of the tree. We love this look!

All the tree ring paintings are unique pieces. You can buy a set of three for $52.99 (which seems like a bargain for original art). See more of Tracy's work on his etsy shop, Focus Line Art Paintings.
