Deadwood #3



57 x 26


Acrylic on canvas, stretched over a handmade cedar frame


This series started as a rumination on the creepy tree from the HBO Carnivale series, and then more or less developed into a series about the starkness of trees in the winter.  They’re some of my earliest work, and are pretty much just black paint on natural, unprimed canvas. 


I can’t remember exactly what was going on in 2010, but something about painting these funky, misshapen trees was very therapeutic at the time.  Also, why did I build a canvas with such weird dimensions?  Who knows.
