Ficus on a Sunny Morning (30"x40")

More of my ficus obsession. This is the painting first posted on July 14th, further developed.

  1. It’s amazing just how deep this painting is — how far one can travel into it. And the tree seems spirit-inhabited.

  2. Wow, I am on the same page as William. This is fathoms, Jean. And magical. I really love this one.

  3. We coulda used you this spring when the city was yelling out in the early nite morning, "TIMBER", to the ficus & carrotwoods on Colorado in our Playhouse Dist.

    Ficus is a deep tree.

  5. Thanks, all.

    CP, save the ficus, save the world? Maybe.

    This painting is now resting propped against the wall, off the easel, surrounded by the other tree paintings I've done recently.

  6. And it looks like a cool place to sit in the noonday sun.

  7. I like that I'm seeing shapes emerging from the center of your tree. A hexagonal pattern of a bee hive along with the Venus of Willendorf. I do.

  8. Very sit-able, AH.

    I'm seeing the hexagon, but not the venus. Will have to look again.
