Saying  Good-bye
11" x  14"   oil on canvas

Adieu to this nice tree. It, and the many trees behind the fence are slated for demolition. This is where a new apartment complex is going in and the tree-lined parking lot is on its way out. Sadly, this guy is in an especially bad place - a new turn lane is desperately needed here. So everybody can agree: it's a good tree in a bad place. It seemed important somehow to capture its likeness and to quietly celebrate its life. It's been here a long time.

This piece is painted on all sides of the canvas. It can be framed or hung as it is.
