Connecting with Nature - Tree Series
When I'm not painting, I'm in whatever type of garden I have at any given time. Sometimes it's nearby woods or swamps, sometimes a small patio but Nature is Nature. As I grow older, my garden is often in my mind. I started working on my series of trees during our Covid shut down. It began when I was driving down a nearby street and stopped at a red light. As I sat there I noticed how a street light was almost buried in the leaves of one of the trees in my view. I started thinking about how the tree must feel to have a light shining on it day and night and not being able to say or do anything about it. That is what my tree series is all about... the strength, emotions and expressions among themselves and sometimes their connection to us humans.Click on the image for a larger view and for information about the painting.
