Autumn Trees and Leaves...
Tree of Life images can be found in most cultures, times, and styles of expression. The ideas seem universal. In recent time, Piet Mondrian painted a series of wonderful tree interpretations which when viewed in chronological order as painted, give the viewer a greater understanding of abstract painting.
My own "Tree of Life" is just outside my kitchen and living room windows. After I quite accidentally did a smaller version as a student demonstration, I really wanted to tackle this painting.
As I have watched our family and others developing and branching, the imagery and personal interpretations have engaged my heart and mind.
What do you see?
