10 favorite FREE download tree art pieces

There are so many great options out there these days for art!! Lots of print shops, DIY art ideas, and museums providing free downloads. It's overwhelming. I actually got a request from an Instagram follower for a collection of my favorite pieces of tree art, and I thought... yes! I do have a list!

Her request came after I shared this fabulous large art I just got for our bedroom. It's a print of an etching done by Bertha Jaques in 1937, and it's available for download (Cabin in Wilderness | Smithsonian American Art Museum). See below...

To be honest, this size and framing was inspired by a pair of art prints available for around $400 each at a designer's shop. I don't know the history of those ones, but I love this print itself and I love online custom framing. I had this one printed at Art to Frames and it was under $100! It's about 19"x30" (custom size, due to the nonstandard size of the original art piece) and was $96 for this framing job (Black on Red Oak frame, 1" mat). I've used Art to Frames many times before and I love this frame--solid wood, nice and narrow, really versatile. And I love that I could customize the mat--I wanted a little mat, but also not to take over the framing of the piece.

(Art to Frames did not sponsor this post, but provided this frame for me to share.)

On to the list. 10 FREE downloads, from the original sources, of tree art!

I'm in love. #6 reminds me of the trees and rocks at my summer camp in the Puget Sound, I love the pencil and etching black/ivory ones, and I love the colors in the landscapes. 

Our bedroom is coming together and I just knew I wanted something special for this wall. I love the piece I chose, and custom framing is perfect for original art prints because they are often unique sizes. 

Tip: another option for printing and framing awkwardly sized art is using your computer’s photo editing tool to crop to a standard size. You will cut off some of the image, but then it’s easier to get it printed at a lot of online print places, and easier to find a stock frame.

Next up for this room: adding trim to that window (that's bare drywall you see), adding a blackout Roman shade to keep it cooler in the summer, and swapping out the quilt for something lighter weight for spring/summer!
