A return to digital manipulation. This is based on a mono print from a leaf scanned and digitally layered. The notion of the infinite in Nature continues as a theme. It is interesting how the tree motif emerges from the leaf veins almost of its own volition.
I have always loved this Nietzsche quote as phrased by Gombrich in “The Story of Art”
“All nature faithfully”–But by what feint Can Nature be subdued to (the artist’s) constraint? Her smallest fragment is still infinite! And so he paints but what he likes in it. What does he like? He likes, what he can paint!

Thro’ raw bled rough to dogwood pole
Pale care worn cloud wash hurries by
Blood thickened tangle stands before
Impenetrable thicket gore
Yet rising clean untouched unclawed
The marker stands to light the road
An allegory to explain
A way to rise above the pain
