We launched leggings! Step into a world of individuality.

There is a serene place on the Eastern Shore of Virginia that is desolate and full of beauty… A winding walk through the woods, down sandy paths… and suddenly the sandy beach lies ahead, littered with carcasses of trees once green with leaves… Yet another in this series, the tree struggles to maintain its upright pose as the erosion continues…

“The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.”

Thanks to Cris Buscaglia Lenz for her beautiful Texture No. 231
Three other textures created by me

Residing near the beach, I love to take my camera on photo-shoots when there is an impending storm, darkened skies, with the threat of rain or even snow! The shadows call to me and the fog is my friend. I hear sounds…yet most of the surroundings lie hidden from view. This allows me to escape into my own world, creating the next canvas for another of my “paintings.”

    The Eastern Shore is a beautiful place, haunting in some regards, a wonderful place to experience wildlife. There are beaches and even bridges that have washed away over the last 40 years, I guess. This is an amazing sight— your picture of a tree, still rooted, with everything gone from under it. An article in this regard.

  • Thank you for the article and your commentary…Such a sad thought to see our world going under water… I appreciate your visit!

    Very wonderful artwork!!

  • Thank you, Gena! It was such an intriguing tree remnant, still firmly planted as the waters continued to erode…

    The texture shimmers above the sand, giving the impression of the sea taking over – prophetic, perhaps. I really love the gnarled shapes and stubbornness of the old tree.

  • Hi Celeste-
    The shimmering texture on the sand was ocean water, glazing the rippling sand…Thanks for noticing it…I wanted the sand to be awash with “water” to convey my message…

    I like this a lot! It looks like a work of science fiction and I can see the tree as an elephant.

  • I agree with you, John, that the tree does seem a bit science fiction-ish…It was so strange to come across all the tree skeletons on this bit of abandoned beach… Thank you!

    Susan – looking at the photograph again, I think it has a certain Daliesque quality, which with your painting skills, I’m sure you could exploit

  • What a wonderful compliment, John…I so appreciate your words…wow!!!
