Hackberry no. 3

I have painted and drawn this tree several times. This time I used a combination of watercolor and pen and ink. It is a study in color, texture and sunlight.​

Backyard Snag

Just a little window into the edge of a rural backyard. In this one I started with dark watercolor and came back over with details in gouache.​

A "snag" is a dead tree still standing.

My Ancestors

Subject matter here is a very small cemetery near a church in South Pittsburg, Tennessee. Some of my Wynne and Atnip ancestors are buried there.

I have always been visually attracted to dappled sunlight that makes circles and ovals on surfaces.​
