Hit by the Sun
Cypress Hills
24×42 inches

I love trees.  I believe they have something unique to say.  After much thought, I’ve decided I’m attracted to how they stand – the way they lean this way and that,  the goofiness of the trunks and branches, and the sound of the wind blowing as it whispers over their leaves.

I particularly notice leaves when I’m driving.  I know, you’re thinking you’re not safe on the road with me gazing at the trees from behind my steering wheel.  When I’m heading home on Southridge Drive, I can’t help but notice the trees on the right side of the path.  The evergreens are bent in all sorts of shapes from the many snow and wind storms.  Their weirdly twisted trunks help them stay upright in the harsh climate.  It gets me every time.
