Artist: Cliff Eyland
Title: Untitled (aa01)
Medium: acrylic on gessoed MDF board.
5"x3" (12.7x7.6 cm)
Notes: This is a picture of a typical tree, an evergreen. When Eyland was a child he would try to count every tree that he saw during car trips. Once he had the ambition to make as many paintings of trees as the number of trees that have been cut down.
