back on trees

if you knew me in college, then you've probably seen this painting. it has since been sold (hey justin, you are still my biggest patron yet!)
e.cobb: tree, 2003. oil on canvas 3'x3' (?)

everyone loved the tree paintings. despite their popularity, i've been hung up on figure based work for some time. this is probably due to the fact that i love painting skin...and i love a human body's lines. anyway, i'm sick of nudes. so guess what? i'm back on trees! it helps that essentially, i live in a tree house.
my second floor apartment is lined with floor to ceiling windows, surrounded with this view:

nice inspiration board eh? expect a tree painting series in the near future. who's excited?
