A tree as metaphor

Growth. Japanese ink and pencil on old watercolour paper. 22 x 22cm.
This was given to an old friend who has been having a time of it lately.
I was thinking of how this tree has had branches snap, has been twisted, attacked by the elements and still pushed it’s way towards the light, year after year. Making it’s way to something beautiful and grand. I wanted to keep the movement, energy and life in the tree.

A detail. How I worked, on the ground in the mud, sitting on the bag, meeting lots of dogs. A photograph of the tree. Only taken after the work is finished.
