SHADOWS OF OLD TREES


These old maples are bulging with burls, festooned with leaves up and down their trunks that catch any rays of light filtering through the canopy. Light and shadow change minute by minute. In paint, I try to remember the light.

As soon as I get my head above water, I'll post the Peru paintings and journal.

I love this painting, its mysterious, beautiful, inviting, dramatic. pretty much everything I want in a painting.
