WEEPY TREES

 

The weepy trees series was started in 2005 as a response to the lonely trees I see on my runs to Castle Island in the winter.  I run from Fort Point down to the "suga bowl" and back. These trees are clinging for life to the windswept cold penisula. Both a compositional exercise and experiments in pigments and flow, this series is an exploration of an idea and an emotion. This series has evolved since 2005 and is ongoing. I have used the Weepy Trees to introduce new experimental wet media to my pallet. In them you will see inks,pastels, salt, conte crayon, gouache and gesso. A companion to the earth square series, together forming the true basis of my entry into Horizon Studies and a foray from plein air to more abstract studio pieces.
