This is a tree I draw regularly. It is outside my window in Bushwick. About 10 years ago I ordered the tree from the city and they came and planted it. It has grown to almost the height of my building and some day will provide shade. I love seeing it grow and the birds that rest on the top branches.
This drawing is a plan drawing for a larger sculpture that I plan to make. I keep saying I will make it while I am upstate but when I am here I cannot do it. The quiet, the trees, keep me from making noise and working. My studio in Brooklyn cannot handle the sawdust... alas.. it will happen in due time.
