Artist's Description

This old tree has been torn apart probably by lighting. There appeared to be some leaves showing above the grass last summer so I believe it’s still alive. I was sitting close to it just enjoying the view one day. I kept being drawn back to it. If it were in the forest it probably wouldn’t be that noticeable. Out there in the open field, it’s seen by all. I thought how a lot of people should be like this tree. Their lives are torn apart by abusiveness and they need to bring it out in the open for all to see. Though torn apart they are still alive inside, but maybe not for long. Sadly though most try and keep it hidden. They try to blend in with everyone else. They go through every fearful minute of life like the tree hidden away in the forest….if you think you know someone that may be being abused point this tree out to them as I have you, tell them the difference in it and the one being in the forest. Sometimes all they need is a little push. Telling about a tree in a field is a way of gently approaching the subject
