Our Work

Trees have become very special to me. They represent people and the past. Often gnarly showing scars, breakages, and changes with the utmost patience and dignity. I have been very drawn to draw and paint and represent trees in my work. 

TREE PROJECTS

Angel Oak Tree Projects

This entire project series started with my trip to Ireland in February 2020. I was going to see the Book of Kells on display at Trinity College in Dublin on our first day. I decided then that I was going to try to paint a tree that reminded me of the gnarly trees I expected to see in Ireland . . . 

Pine Tree Project

This project started by me wanting to document the process of painting a tree. I navagated through my local parks to find just the right tree. I ended up a Greenfield Park near my home to find this beauty. It ended up as a comissioned work for the Kornuth's 50th Wedding Anniversary titled "Kevin Loves Kathy" which is now faintly inscribed on the tree. . .

Trees in Multiple Panels

I was only painting on the weekends at this time and I was experimenting with layering acrylic mediums and ended up making several multiple panel paintings, some of which were heavily textured abstract trees. . .

Winter Trees

I just love seeing trees covered in snow and ice glistening in the sun. Painting them has taught me so much about my paintings in general. This was a wonderful concept tree with cardinals.
