These intuitive paintings develop a personality while I’m painting them. I never know in advance what to expect. Each tree has a unique personality. The original painting is done in handmade watercolor paints made from my local pigments.
This is an open-ended collection. I paint twisted trees whenever one calls for creation. Sometimes they arrive in groups, sometimes just a single tree.
NFTs are sometimes digitally enhanced, but not always. Tweet me @wildozark if you’d like to ask questions.
In a Sea of Swirling Air
The wind rolls in like waves
breakers on hilltops
It spills, crashes into the valley
I feel like a mermaid
In a sea of swirling air
A monochromatic painting in green siltstone, this Wild Ozark Twisted Tree is letting her inner mermaid free.
My inspiration for this piece was the wind during autumn here in the Wild Ozark holler. You can hear the wind coming from a long ways away. The volume builds as it approaches, crests the top of the hill, and then it whooshes through the trees as it flows into the valley. When this happens, it stirs the leaves all around and they swirl. It makes me feel like a mermaid in a sea of swirling air.
The original painting is 5 x 7″ on watercolor paper mounted to birch panel. It is framed in barnwood with a rock sample mounted on the frame.
