"In the midst of doing compositional studies from the photo with acetate and marker, I realized that the studies themselves were pretty interesting. From there, it was off to the photocopier where I turned and flipped the transparencies. From there, I reassembled the photocopies into their final form and added the colored lines in marker. I've made several discoveries while doing this project. The first is that even though I've lived in Flemington, New Jersey for most of my life, this is the first time that I actually saw my tree (it's on Main Street). About 100 yards behind my tree is a newly built prison on land that used to be a playground. Furthermore, I have definitely anthropomorphized my tree, seeing several distinct faces and human body elements in its bark and limbs."
