    I may be a girl but trees give me wood

    I don’t know how it works, how to do the math, but it’s like every emotion I’ve ever felt somehow gets wrapped up in trees. Trees become some kind of conduit for thought and feeling, for understanding, for epiphany, for optimism, for love.

    Back before I broke myself, I used to run at night, sort of for the deep dark sky and sort for the silvery moon but really mostly for the night-time trees. I love them best, the night-time trees, but trees are always a win-win proposition and the delicious shiver I get from them transcends time and place.

    Mmmmm! I love trees too. Last evening, I was driving east on Ventura Blvd in Encino and saw a group of trees in the distance, and it looked like a woman carrying a basket. As I got closer, the palm trees moved apart, and mophed into two, then the illusion was gone. It made me happy.

    As I was looking at the images you posted, I got excited when I saw the drawing by Brookes Shane Salzwedel. I attended the No Brow Group Show at the Black Maria Gallery in 2008 and his were my favorite pieces. The drawings were on layered vellum, some placed inside vintage ins, and covered with clear resin. So sublime that I think of them often!!
