This piece coalesced out of the ether. I had no physical reference point but my motivation and guiding premise was to create an image that would portray the mood that I was imagining . . . it needed to be powerful yet delicate, bright but, at the same time, wispy and ethereal. I love trees for their power, shelter, and outright magnificence, so that’s where I began. In the end, I feel I’ve managed to accomplish what I set out to do. I hope you do, too.
