In Balance

I haven't painted much except for illustration work so it's always encouraging when I start up again and I like what comes off the brush.   The gorgeous old maples on my place are always a source of inspiration, but challenging to interpret.  I'm amazed at the profusion of life that inhabits each tree which is a complete ecosystem of it's own... in perfect balance.  I like the strong triangular shape of the trunks intertwining as they push up against the sky and the delicacy of licorice fern embedded in thick moss jackets draped on the trees.
