Tree in a Gray Place

Acrylics, 14″ x 11″ on masonite, February, 2019.

I have the feeling this tree stands along the road near the ocean and it’s a chilly day, not quite raining. You need your nice thick sweater to feel comfortable as you walk, and thank goodness you brought enough money to stop at the cafe and get some hot chocolate. You pick up your steps and hurry on, leaving the tree, perfectly content, in its place.

There’s the story I thought of, anyway.

      Thank you. It reminds me of a trip to California I made some years back – it was in the fall and misty and rainy, and there were trees like this sort of hanging over the ocean. I’ve never forgotten it.

      Yes. Because when the need strikes, there it is, and if not met, an opportunity may be missed that would have connected to it. That’s my theory. Plus, I like to know I can get a snack if I want one, anytime…

      Thank you. I had a more subdued painting going, got aggravated by it and that gave me the push to be a little more free. I do like how this one came out.
