Old Tree

“storms make trees take deeper roots.” ~ Dolly Parton

Impending east coast storms have me thinking about the power of nature… and for some reason, a drawing I did many years ago came to mind. It’s quite large for a pen and ink, and took a long bit of time. I had been in a very meditative place, and became lost in the leaves and bark and majesty of the tree; the strokes of the pen were both welcoming and healing… and it remains one of my favorites.

    Interesting perspective… at the time, perhaps it did serve to rescue me in some manner. Thank you for your thoughts!

    What an incredible image. I see a man hang on for dear life, hugging the tree’s trunk right below the lower branches on the right. He’s wearing a russian fur hat and he seems to have a scarf (or beard?) over his face…
    Leave it to my healthy imagination! 🙂
    Perhaps it was meant to be a rescue tree?

Your thoughts?
