Understory (2015)

$4000 USD
This painting is about transitions. This giant maple has grappled with a tenuous hold on the slope for many years. At some point the battle will be lost as the sheer weight of the tree will lead to its demise. While it exists, it will give homes to ferns, wild grape and many other plants. These in turn give cover and nesting sites for the Winter Wren. As the seasons change and winter comes to the mountains, the Varied Thrush transitions to the lowlands to escape the snow and becomes another actor in the maple's story. The magic of it all is that the story is ever-changing and never exactly repeated from one year to the next
