|"Tangled Roots," 5x5in., oil on masonite|
My 66th mini painting, this of a giant ficus in noir, towering in all directions, its canopy sheltering half a block, and proclamations of love graffitied into its smooth bark. Its roots overflow, entangle, unsettle, like a pit of pythons.
Like our own roots in family and community.
