Do you ever wonder how they do it? I mean do you ever wonder how those twisty pines seem to hang on like that for dear life? There is no soil to protect the roots. There are constant smashing waves and blowing winds that batter and bend them from side to side, day and night, yet there they stand. When the sun comes out they sparkle in the light and reveal the wonderful layers of green and yellow hidden in the needles.
A powerful statement on life, thinks this artist. Those who can hold on through thick and thin. Through high water or blowing winds of life are the ones who truly shine and sparkle when things are good.
Georgian Wind is about just that. Strength and beauty in times of storm.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
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.
