I like painting trees.
I also like the fact that the average tree has about the same lifetime as a person, something I learned many years ago and have never forgotten. Of course, there are exceptions. I can think of one, an oak tree in the front yard of my former home, that the arborists estimated was about 220+ years old when it finally had to come down. Usually, though, a person and a tree will grow old together, living a similar number of years.
Maybe this connection is why I return to picturing trees. Here are some recent ones. They are all done in acrylics, 6″ x 6″, on board.
