Tree



"It is remarkable how closely the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man."
Henry David Thoreau 





“A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees.”

  1. Yes, it's true. I also see different telephone poles than others see.

  2. The bottom image is my favorite; there's a nice contrast between the linework of the trees, and their accompanying clouds. (your clouds are atypical as most folks will darken the bottom lines, and to keep the viewer inside your image, you have darkened the tops).
    nice linear coversation!

  3. Funny, as soon as I read the Robert Frost poem that came with the 'tree' prompt, I went hunting for my Thoreau. Wild Fruits. Read all 18 pages about wild apples, and could have enjoyed more. Apple trees have been on my mind - the bent, the up-pushing, cow-repulsing, struggling and triumphantly fruiting wild kind - ever since.

    I enjoy your drawings, the revolt of line against sky, mood against mood. And now, now I MUST go find an apple.
