Charcoal - Blowing Off the Page by 

If you’d like to purchase this, please click over to my Etsy listing for this artwork!

This looks like the picture was created with charcoal, but is blowing off the page. It was taken at a high speed out the window of a Honda as we drove down the interstate in western Nebraska. No charcoal involved.

I have lots of other abstract trees too! To me, they look like they have spirits or souls, like they are alive somehow. Abstract tree impressions seem to show more of what the tree feels like…

    Excellent work Nikki. I could almost feel the harsh sand blowing against my face.

    I like the motion implied and agree that the soft blur adds another dimentions to the trees’ characters so to speak! Well done!

    visually for me… i look to the distance.. i think to where i want to go. To see something familiar. I remember the trees i tell myself. Addition of a person figure does another to the shot. Motion of a sandstorm can be felt to… my right arm protects my face as i advance forward.
