This painting is one of four major seasonal paintings from the series, "Year With a Tree." Change is both the subject and the medium of this series. A single tree becomes a constant against which change is measured. Each work was made on location; some over the course of days, some weeks and some months. The project takes the form of numerous watercolors and oils which investigate, in detail, a single tree at the Eagle River Nature Center from May 13, 2016 to May 13, 2017, and how the changing of the seasons affects the tree. These works are composed from observation in all types of weather so that the many changes of the environment- from sunshine to rain to snow- may have an actual effect on me (the painter), on the paintings and how they are painted, as much as on the tree itself. Clockwise from top left: Overcast, Rain, Sunny, Cloudy, Sunny, Sunny.
