This first painting is entitled Roots. I photographed this tree with its amazing root system over the summer while vacationing in Vermont..
This second painting took me most of the summer into autumn, to complete. Much larger than Roots, which is only 8×10 inches, this painting is 16×20 inches. Based on a photograph taken near Wanakena, NY while kayaking, it’s simply called Island. The vibrant moss and the crystal clear water, in which you can see hundreds of stones, are what drew me to the scene.
