All of the trees on this page are from my imagination. It is about the tree and nothing more, not it’s environment nor the Earth in which it lives, simply the tree. They are on 16 x 20 smooth Bristol board. I first envision the tree in my mind’s eye and then sketch it out in pencil. I then “ink” it with a ball point pen, nothing more. Based on images that I have seen in nature, books, magazines or dreams. Idealized, they are what I would like to see, not what actually exists. Labor intensive, a tree can take anywhere from 3 months to a year to complete.
