“Old, gnarled, slightly hollowed-out trees invite contemplation of our own capacity to survive the winds and storms of life, and to drink in the sun and rain that nourish us. These old trees must have stories to tell, if we could only hear them. Sadly for us, they stand mute, but perhaps they are urging us to follow their example: stay strong and don’t worry too much about your appearance!”
Arizona Artist: Marie Provine.
On view at Grotto Gallery "Walking on Sunshine" exhibit which runs through September 27th, 2018 in downtown Tempe, Arizona.
