THE TREES

 

 

All of the trees on this page are from my imagination.  It is about the tree and nothing more, not it’s envirnoment nor the Earth in which it lives, simply the tree.  They are on 16x20 smooth Bristol board.  I first envision the tree in my mind’s eye and then sketch it out in pencil.  I then “ink” it with a ball point pen, nothing more.   They are based on images that I have seen in nature, books, magazines or dreams and idealized, what I would like to see, not what actually exists.  They are labor intensive, taking me anywhere from 3 months to a year to complete.  These are not “copies” of bonsai’s or real life trees, but fantasies.

 

They ARE my bonsai.
