The image in this painting is of a dying tree. The tree stands alone on hill, with storm clouds overhead. The tree has had a difficult existence, but it still stands. The idea I was trying to convey is the harshness of life. From an environmental sense; the world is being destroyed, the world has been twisted and is scarred by human civilization. From an individual point of view; life can twist and scar individuals. An individual may overcome life’s difficulties, but there are always scars left.
