(Neighbor's Linden Tree Surface Map)

A linden tree grows in the treelawn of my neighbor's house. As the tree grew, the environment and the pressure of growth created the complex texture on the bark - the visible outer layer of the tree. I started this surface map with a rubbing of the tree bark, followed by detailed bark line drawing, and handmade artist materials.

This painting is part of the  “Surface Maps” series.
