Tree Of Life & Death Update

Here's the new version of this painting (see entry somewhere below):

Acrylic on plywood, 2007, 30" x 18".

The main difference is the addition of the parallel lines to create a "woodcut" or "Venetian blind" effect, which gives the painting both more depth & more flatness, or graphic sensibility, to my mind. My paintings have often used recurring linear elements (see the original tree painting below), so this seems to be a logical extension of that. It's proving to be an interesting stylistic element. More examples to follow.
