Acrylic on canvas

Towering coniferous trees and deciduous sentinels evoke thoughts about this land that we share with nature. As our winters warm, tiny beetles have painted red pine skeletons against the blue Caribou sky. Words drift through my mind: “timeline”… “treeline”… “deadline”…. We are at a crossroad where we must understand the interconnected nature of our lives with our surrounding environment. It’s essential to make choices that will protect and enhance wellbeing for the intricate web of life. In “Deadline” I have incorporated elements from the wilderness place I inhabit. On a base of plaster on wooden panel are layers glazes of acrylic paint over areas of wood ash, earth and pine needles. Can you sense the elusive tales swirling through this dying forest?
