Artist Description

This painting is a very personal tribute to the power and magnitude that trees exude. The great pull of a tree holds me firm while opening me to emotions that lie deep. Such a powerful process distorts and transforms my vision as the emotional journey is very consuming.
I chose to paint the tree in silhouette as the purity and lyricism of the negative and positive shapes talk of the emotional veil that drenches my vision. Extracting the essence of a silhouette from an image has the ability to still me internally while painting and hopefully has the same effect on the viewer while observing the painting.
