The Good Book

The forest in the Pacific Northwest with its tall trunks, diagonal branches and slanted light has m, at times, seeing figures among the trees. My worries and concerns and inner dream world can create a sense of people and animals shimmering in and out of sight. The somber man in black who defies the rules of nature with his heavy tome is one of these figures. In this painting, I set him on the plains in the wind where he can fight the forces of nature in my mind.
