Artist's description:

Nature was here first. It is the roots of our existence & deserves our protection.
Indigenous people, animals and plants are all striving to not become extinct in a world where the politics that govern ourselves and the planet become less and less transparent.
I look to nature for guidance and a sense of well being.

The process of this piece began with a graphite study I created from a Darryl Glenn Steele drawing. The rich texture of the trees are created with collaged bits of images of bark & litter that I clean up off of scenic highways, as a gentle reminder that if we do not stop trashing the planet, trees will not grow from our garbage in the future. Layering watercolor, collage and graphite pencil work and just a bit of gesso, I work to create an aesthetically alluring painting with a deeper message about protecting our forests.

This piece has been finished with two coats of archival satin varnish, creating a contemporary but natural look. The edges are finished with varnish as well, but left natural and often display drips of paint from the process. No framing required.

Materials used:

watercolor, pencil, gesso, collage
