Arboreal Affection

Arboreal Affection

48 x 58 inches

Oil on Canvas


Almost every culture has a mythos of lovers

who have transcended their normal earthly stay.

Overlooking a beautiful bay,
high atop a windswept cliff,

two trees are affectionately embracing each other.

Their roots mix and trail deep into the land.

A small waterfall finds it way down to the soft velvet bay.
