I thought I’d post this new digital painting diptych today (shown above), even though it isn’t quite seasonal, and instead of green leaves and flowers I saw snow on my walk today up into the canyon by my house. I actually finished the images a month or two ago in September, but am just now sharing.
One of my very favorite things to do is to walk through the green (or gold, or white, depending on the time of year) underneath the trees. Walking up into the hills is probably one the things that helps keep me (relatively) sane. Its important to spend time out in nature. And, I love trees. I love to look up into and through their branches. I love the patterns and geometry those branches make as they reach for the sky. I love to see the patterns their roots make as they dig into the dirt. I love it all.
I’ve written a bit here recently about the Green Man and dryads, and I love them too. I’ve included their spirits into this here artwork as well.
These pieces are part of a series I have been working of for a little while called Songs from the Earth. I’ll write more about the series sometime soon, but in the mean time, you can see the progress I have made with it through this link.
