“The Tree” SOLD:  60h x 48w; oil, acrylic, pencil, gold leaf on canvas

The family who bought “The Tree” saw it at the Beverly Hills Art Show and we talked for several months about it.

I’m happy to report that it was SOLD and is happy in it’s new home. I consider the painting one of my signature pieces, not only for its size but for the detail and new explorations it holds.

I used a variety of paints: oils acrylics, metalics and gold leaf. The pencil spirals again cover the image and the ink drips and spirals enhance the mystery.

Thank you to the collector. May you enjoy it for many years.

Trees are all around us. They are alive. “Hug a tree!” we’re told… and we do.
Los Angeles has a MillionTreesLA.com project that has inspired me to create my own world of trees…some walk, some sing, some remind us of times past. AND they are speaking hiakus. “My Trees Talking”  brings to light the hidden life of trees. Through my vision and whimsical perspective combining artwork and the written word. TREEs you want to HUG will come alive for you. These trees will not crystalize your thoughts, they are not architecturally rendered; they are not assaulting or disruptive, inanimate or recycled visions of times past. “My Trees Talking” are extremely present and attentive to life in the everyday moment you breathe…and the action of breath is what connects all living things.

I ask a lot of questions. That is how I get in the mood to create artwork. Every piece of art has the action of researching a question. Some ask. Others answer. My focus is on the energy of the process, the how, the why, the who.

The research for my October show led me to the “Million Trees LA” project and I learned that so far they have helped distribute and plant around 350,000 trees to date. Wow… beautifying LA and trees… how much better can it be…. So, I decided to make, “TREES” the focus and imagery for my show!

I then pushed the process to form a question, and decided to explore it more. My thoughts went to the “My ____ Talking” series of books I’m writing, then I asked, “How can I work another book Continue reading
