Ashes To Ashes

Ashes To Ashes

Ashes To Ashes is a painting I made about the Emerald Ash Beetle’s devastion of so many of our large ash trees. Our little woods looked so bleak this summer;  I observed so many trees down or standing dead that I would see images in my head after a walk through the forest.In a loose manner I replicated the bark and trunks of the many fallen giants.  It’s hard for me to express the sadness I feel at their loss.
