The Watching Trees

30x40, oil on panel

I try to make a point of doing a decent sized personal piece every couple months or so. This one has been sitting in my head for a year now and I finally made that opportunity so that I could show it at Illuxcon 6. As with some of my other recent personal work, this is much more about mood than specific narrative which makes it extra difficult for me to verbalize any thoughts that I have about it. This sort of painting feel more to me like sounds and tactile sensations than words. If I could name a painting with the sound that branches make when they scrape in a very gentle breeze, I probably would have named it that.
