The wet trees are shown in progress. The process in these two paintings began with black, red and white. That is the underpainting. Then the blue green layers. As I paint it feels like a poem. There's a narrative. Sometimes the viewer gets to share in that underpainting knowingly or gets hints.It's the layers that give strength to everything else but sometimes it's not revealed it is camouflaged or enhanced. Without it however what you see would not be as it is. Such as our lives.
