This is a series of paintings I am working on. Trees have always held symbolic power for me. While painting the series "Through the Leaves" I wanted to explore the many different ways trees affect us. Through the acrylic pour techniques I used I was able to capture the full range from spring budding and blooming to the autumn changing of colors.
Using the pour technique means I relinqish control of the flow and movement of the paint to chance and chaos. That is what I like about it. Life is often given over to chance. Chance encounters, chance circumstances, can drastically alter the path of ones life. Much like a seedling growing in a forest, chance plays its part in the trees survival to old growth and mature wood.
Each painting is 18'x24' and is ready to hang.
