New Painting, Let me Come and be Still in Your Silence

24" x 48"
Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas

"The trees in the storm don't try to stand up straight and tall and erect. They allow themselves to bend and be blown with the wind. They understand the power of letting go. Those trees and those branches that try too hard to stand up strong and straight are the ones that break." ~Julia Butterfly Hill

Try as I might, no matter what I am working on, I always return to my tree paintings. Their symbolism, the strength and frailty and giving they portray, is synonymous with how I see myself.  



  1. Your tree paintings are my very favorite. The pink flowering trees are my ideal "something special" for our nursery should we have a girl!

  2. Thanks, Jen! I love how that piece has made an impact on you. Hope you are feeling well and that things are going smoothly!
