Have a dose of the rain that California is still terribly in need of!
This tree has the twists and turns of a maze, the fat, short trunk splitting off into pathways and branches full of gnarls and bends.
The black seems dense at first but at second look there are subtle textures of bark adding dimension and shape, contrasting beautifully with the rainy sky behind it.
Above, you can see the hints of bark texture hiding in the black ink silhouette. Below, the painting rests in a temporary frame, just waiting to bring a breath of crisp autumn into your hot summer days.
