“I am at my best when alone with nature. ” – from Artist’s Statement 2000 – Natchez Mississippi
Is it a tree? Is it an animal? The following image represents a hybrid, painted to illustrate a quote by John Muir.
“Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away; and if they could, they would still be destroyed — chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones. “ -John Muir
