Breathe In, Breathe Out


Boxelder trees (Acer negundo) are considered the “ugly duckling,” a maple outcast of the native tree world. To me, it’s a tree of my childhood. Brave and incredibly hardy, it has been planted as a windbreak and for land reclamation. Indeed, the Boxelder can grow in dry conditions and poor sites where no other tree can. Interestingly only the female Boxelders attract the boxelder bug in the late summer into autumn. And how can boxelder bugs be a household pest when they are too busy blessing the Boxelder tree?

Fine art 11 x 14-inch print by visual artist Kristin Maija Peterson. Artist prints are produced in the studio with the finest inks and materials available.

Your print will arrive beautifully packaged with care, ready for framing, and shipped in eco-friendly materials.

Art prints are purchased unframed. One easy and affordable recommendation is to frame your new botanical watercolor 11 x 14” print in a frame by PROJECT 62, a brand that most Target stores carry. Only use Artist Tape or Linen Hinge Tape to adhere your print to the mat. Never use scotch or duct tape as these are not acid-free and will deteriorate your print over time. Please find more information about framing your fine art print on our Framing Tips and Resources page. Remember to hang your print away from direct sunlight to preserve its color.
