"The shadows of trees provide enigmatic designs throughout the day as well as moonlit nights, creating intriguing patterns for imagination."

When I was a child, the shadows of bare trees in the moonlight often stirred my imagination. They were like dark fingers reaching toward me, sometimes making me uneasy enough to pull the covers over my head. But my dreams never featured the trees as menacing creatures. They were more like sentries, guarding my room, protecting me from any harm. Trees are our shelters that, like the serendipitous form of the butterfly encased within the thicket, are sanctuaries of rest for our souls.

By turning my reference photo of a pair of trees on a snow-blanketed morning into a black-and-white posterized image, what remained was a tentacled-pattern of branches above and shadows below in a wild and intricate burst of shapes. In painted form, hues of blues, teals, and violets woven through a textured warm black create a subtly-colored and enigmatic design flowing through each piece. It is up to the viewer's imagination to complete the story. ~ tch
