Forest Floor Patterns
Much of my current work is inspired by nature and the passage of time within the natural world. This pen and ink drawing explores the patterns found on the forest floor, and the many stages of forest life.
"When a tree is cut down and reveals its naked death-wound to the sun, one can read its whole history in the luminous, inscribed disk of its trunk: in the rings of its years, its scars, all the struggle, all the suffering, all the sickness, all the happiness and prosperity stand truly written, the narrow years and the luxurious years, the attacks withstood, the storms endured." --Hermann Hesse
