On my way to the college where I teach, I pass this old pine that is past its prime. I love the silouette that this giant creates. I stopped and took some reference photos of this tree as I felt at some point I would drive to work and see that it has fallen. It was my way of capturing this 'sentinal' before it was no longer there. I chose to create this piece as a tryptich and attaching the separate panels together as at some point this giant of a tree will fall and be in pieces as well.
