Artist’s Musings

a pair of geese flew by; outside my studio window; i’m glad elephants don’t fly

This tree with the bleached bark

It’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. It is the first day of spring. Around the corner on Race and Cypress Streets. What is this specie of tree called? For 4 years I have thought that this tree on Race and Cypress Streets was dead. I have been itching to make a painting of this tree since moving to Kennett Square in 2014. I often asked myself how do I paint this tree because there are so many things going on around it, and while I was painting, so many gnats doing their midair courtship around my face. Anyway, here it is.
