Trees and Faces

This small pastel is a view of the D&R canal looking northwest towards Church Street at Trimmer in Titusville, NJ.  The pastel above is a self-portrait of a moving tree.

Since I spent the weekend working on several self-portraits, I wanted to see again a video installation by Jennifer Steinkamp of a moving tree that goes through the four seasons.  It's at MOCA in North Adams, MA.  See , especially the tree projection called Mike Kelly.  Painting self-portraits is like trying to paint a moving tree.  Everything keeps changing.
