I love trees. I love the look of them, the smell of them, the way they change with the season, their durability, all the wonderful things you can do with them. I love the way they provide for so many creatures in so many ways. They clean the air we breathe, they provide shade from the heat, they provide shelter for birds and other animals, they provide food for insects after they fall. Nothing is wasted in a tree, it is a complete life cycle; even in death they have a purpose. And, they are beautiful to look at.
So with those thoughts in mind……….here is my first portrait of: A tree.
