My series of paintings featuring tree people (treople?) is one where I focus on various aspects of the human condition, but I choose to represent that aspect using figures crafted from trees. The purpose of this is to show the experience rather than show someone specific experiencing the experience. Instead of seeing a person, this approach forces the viewer to see the experience first.

Additionally, I've made a specific stylistic change in the work I produce in 2021 treople when compared to the first series from 2009 by cutting away portions of the background. The background shows that these figures are rooted in the natural world, but during the experience we transcend the boundaries of the world around us.

This is my third waltz painting. I've never been much of a dancer. Two left feet and all that. Didn't attend dances much in school, and actively avoided it in PE. That said, the fluid embrace of a person with whom you are enthralled is the type of experience I like to try and capture. It would seem that, as in life, one must try for this experience often if one is to find it.
