Dusky Yielding FilaTree
Acrylic on Canvas, 2016
This tree lives somewhere in the Woolwich Township area, and the reference photo was taken on one of our many Sunday drives. This tree is fully dressed in leaves, but still allowed some openings to see through the canopy – kind of like a filigree.
I felt like this tree had something to say. Something like, “I’m exactly where I should be, and you can count on me to be here to keep an eye on things.” Very solid and steadfast, despite the see-through bits.
