Tree of Life

25.00

This piece was created while I was lucky enough to spend time with a group of phenomenal women in a quiet setting in nature, away from the demands of everyday life. In this painting, the leaves of a cotton wood tree mimic the ripples in water. The ripples create a living pattern simulating the unique flickering rhythm of light infused cottonwood leaves in the wind. The cottonwood tree is a tree that is naturally infused with water, saturated with this life-giving element. The fork in the tree shows duality, the balance of masculine and feminine, a concept I am fascinated with being female with a male twin. Water is also binary: positive and negative polarities are what make it able to interact so easily with other molecules.  The balance of the masculine and feminine are further signified by the hour glass form from the ground to the sky, with cool colors moving up from the earth and warm colors flickering down from the sky, warm and cool, masculine and feminine, merging in the tree itself.
