Honestly, playing with the lines, shapes and shading of a tree is so relaxing and so zen that I just can't stop myself. It's so entirely different from paying attention to the detail in someone's face for example. With these tree drawings I've been up to lately, I can just go. Even the act of erasing some of the lines feels like it's part of the sketch.

I guess you could say I'm a bit of a tree hugger these days. But I've never really noticed until now, after taking zillions of photographs in Prospect Park and after doodling them so much lately, that trees are just as diverse and beautiful as snowflakes.
