The Tree Series 2013

Sometimes… different seasons happen in the same day.

One of my all time favorite subjects to paint is trees. Trees of all kinds. They have as much character as any person I have ever met. I started my drawing quest in the graveyards of Kansas City drawing all day with my mom or grandfather. We would spend hours in a quiet graveyard looking at perspective points and lines in the shapes of the gravestones. Plenty of statues that stay perfectly still for modeling for a sketch. Last but not at all least… Nature. Trees, birds, flowers and rocks… all influenced my work today.

My love for trees started in the¬†graveyards¬†of Kansas City… and I paint those same trees to this day.`

Pictures is Tree Number Four and Five. Stay tuned for more to be posted…
