Farragut West Twisted Tree

"Twisted Tree"  Watercolor, 10x6

I painted this after a sketch I did in the park I cross on my way from my office to the metro.  The funny thing was that a couple weeks later after I sketched it it was cut down.  Just like that.  I have to admit that I was a little shocked.  I always enjoyed passing this tree.  The way it twisted over reminded me of a bent over dancer with her arms over her head. It was just a unique and beautiful tree  I'm glad that I got the courage to stop for a minute and capture this tree in my sketchbook.  Now that it is gone it makes this painting a little more special.

  1. I really like your tree painting. The yellow background works so well. I am sad they took down your tree, yet glad you had the chance to capture it :)

  2. Thanks Mary! I'm glad I had a chance too!

  3. Oooohh. Menacing. It looks like the tree is winding up, about to slap that person into the atmosphere.

    Great capture.

  4. The tree bends to hear the music. wonderful creativity.
