New Work on Paper: Tsuga Triptych…

The Tsuga series… Here is the complete triptych. I intend the three to hang together as they appear here. Each piece is painted on 19″ x 24″ bristol vellum. “Tsuga” is the Japanese (and botanical) word for hemlock. I am fond of hemlock trees in general, but in winter —when I find dead and broken twigs, cones and needles imbedded in melting ice— I am always taken aback by the beauty of this conifer’s skeletal branches.
