The Bengali poet, Rabindranath Tagore, in one of his "Fireflies" observes that, "trees are earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven." These new mixed media works are an attempt to record that conversation in the language of color, form, atmosphere and light. In each piece I use a combination of photographic prints, collage, and paint to detail individual trees within a more abstracted, loosely rendered landscape context. Each tree has its own character, shaped by the elements, and its own beauty that is the inspiration for this work.
