here is a photo i took at the beginning of the summer at a friends incredible backyard. by no means do i claim to be a photographer, but for some reason i really liked this one. i call it 'timeless' because it seems that as you look into the distance, it goes on forever. kind of like life sometimes. anyway, this summer i have developed a fascination for trees. normally, i usually stay away from painting them, due to their complexity. yet, lately, it's like i can't stop looking at them. i've passed down the same road everyday for years and suddenly it's like all these trees are grabbing my attention that i've never seen before. i hope to paint more of them in the future.
