Afternoon Dance with Aspen Sunlight

When I first began painting trees, I quickly became enamored of the geometry in the forest. This is a study in lines and angles, massaged by light and accented with color. I love the way tree trunks all often lean at the same angle, a simple story of shapes and values that simultaneously describe a quiet forest space. The style is quick and spare, the forms within the shapes are simple and clean and the bright sunlight on the wild grass breathes life into it all.
