Cornered Tree




Cornered Tree

It was huge, at the corner of a family house now looking tired. It has been trimmed often over the years. I did this sketch of where the tree, long ago, broke through the ground, a few days ago while in Louisiana. There were still green leaves. It was warm, tee shirt weather.

  1. Bonjour cher Anthony,

    Je viens de me délecter en faisant un retour en arrière sur vos publications que j'avais manquées.
    Que du bonheur que d'admirer vos oeuvres !
    Quel travail extraordinaire et fascinant !
    Comme dans ce dernier billet, il faut aimer les arbres pour si bien les croquer...

    Gros bisous ♡

    1. Thank you for viewing my ongoing work. It’s been a long time. I do so with yours too..
      The tree is a survivor, so easy to get lost in with my lines.

  3. I think I left a comment but I'm not sure, so I love, love how you drew this tree, my only hope is that they cut everything around it and kept this very old tree alive...

    1. Yes, tired. A survivor though, worth trying to relate to, even if only with a lot of squiggly lines.
      Glad to be back, thank you.

  6. Oh such character this amazing tree has...she is an elder with many life stories to relay to those who care to listen.
    They are all there for us to see, if we just look deep enough...:)

    1. Yes a great old tree. There was sort of a conversation while drawing with lots of squiggly lines.
      Thank you
