Pointy Things

These are artist trading cards and all three have a pointed thing in the image. Two of them are trees, and the third, well, could be anything.

These cards are from January 2017.

    Thank you. I am always noticing trees that grow on cliff sides or in rocks and hoping they hold on although this tree looks worried about it, I think.

    Thank you. I find as I go along in art I am getting less and less detailed and focusing more on shapes and colors and relationships, but still things have to have a basis in reality for me or I get lost! I enjoy doing what I am doing these days.

    I feel like the pointiness of the trees and the “totem” act like arrows. I love the energy in the mark making in the first one. It really connects to the idea of a stormy shore.

    Thank you. I’ve been attracted to the theme of cliff, tree, and water recently and I don’t know why as I have no background in that landscape in my actual life. Maybe once again it’s my reading habits. For some reason that first one made me think of Rebecca, by Daphne duMaurier.
