This painting was commissioned by the client, as a gift to her beloved. Naturally the subject matter is their relationship. The image is based on several photos of a fascinating tree, they both took during their honey moon.

Incorporating my own approach of juxtaposing layers, I explored various symbology of connection: the grid of the golden spiral contained within the grid of the picture plane in an abstract formal compositional sense; the skeletal structure of the tree mirroring one side with the other, spreading like adam to eve; the puddlemaking and selective local painting serving as the documentation of the manifestation: accidents, actions, and events holding the relationship together, yet in a natural, organic form.
