Trees are the backdrop of my life - literally, my studio is surrounded by woods.  I feel a kinship with the trees, as if I am painting myself in a made-up landscape.  The trees are constant; what changes is the weather.

The lighting and coloring are delicate (not dark and saturated, usually) so they are not heavy on the surface and almost float airily.  The horizontally-positioned trees suggest a vulnerability of nature, as if they are falling from old age, and returning to the earth.
