Apple Tree

      Several years ago our apple tree died. Actually it took several years to do that. I kept drawing it and shooting it with my K1000 from time to time. Eventually I had enough material to work with and worked up a pen and ink that looked just like this. The next step was with paint.   24 x 24 inches, acrylic on board, 2011

Slow Flame

Trees that live along Lee Creek have a rough time. They get flooded and frozen’not to mention the occasional drought. During the floods they get banged and crunched by floating logs as well as boulders of varying sizes. Almost all of them have their roots excavated. The reason I call this Slow Flame is that the roots look like logs in a fire and the area where the bark is broken off looked like flames to me. acrylic on board, 16 x 20 inches, 2006
