I was attending a funeral, and a friend of mine came up to me and asked me if I could paint this pic he had on his phone. He has a place up north, and on one of his trips out into the woods, he found himself lying on the forest floor looking up at the trees. A sense of calmness came over him as he took in the scenery and silence of the forest. This piece took a long time to paint because I kept messing up the layout of the trees, and to cover black paint with white, was daunting. Many times I had to paint and repaint areas. Many people, when seeing this painting, have told me it reminds them of a Rorschach test.

I just see trees.
