Tree resilience

tree 2

Just some quick oil pastel studies.  The trees around here are incredibly resilient.  The picture below is of a tree growing on a dark bank alongside a track.  It obviously crawled along until it managed to find some light.  The picture above is of trees growing out of a stone wall.  This is quite a common sight around here.

  1. Carole, you always choose the most fascinating corners out there in nature! I walk around for hours wondering what to paint and you just choose a view with such ease. That amazes me.

  2. Hi Carole! This is such an interesting post – I love this work which borders on (and ventures into) the abstract, something I find extremely difficult. I also am enjoying your doll series – I’ll be interested to see where you go with that?
