They twist, they sway, they endure it all. The wind, the rain, the ice, the snow, the waves, you name it, they survive. They do it on the smallest scrawniest roots imaginable, holding on for hundreds of years. There's a story in them, it's about perseverance and making it through rough times. As long as your roots are in tact, you can make it. That's the story behind Robert McAffee Twisty Pines, very much a testament to my very own life.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
