From My Everyday Life

I’ve been interested in trees over the past months – can’t say why. They just interest me, that’s all I know.

Here are three paintings inspired by trees in scenes I know. They are all done in acrylics on panel.

This first tree is from my own back yard.

This scene is from the Norristown Farm Park, a Montgomery County, PA, park not too far from my house.

    Thank you. I have always been interested in trees and I think each one has a personality. Suddenly I seem to want to paint their portraits (in my own manner, I guess). I’m enjoying it.

    Thank you. Once again, it’s the ordinary things that catch my attention. And with trees, well, there is no end to them. I am reading a book about them called the Hidden Life of Trees and I feel even more now that there is a whole population in front of me, really opening my eyes. More tree paintings coming, I think…
