"After the Storm" (gouche and walnut ink on board) - This piece depicts one of the upturned tree's roots after Hurricane Sandy. While at Catoctin the artist came across a number of these trees. They were at once beautiful and frightening, massive and fragile. They were also narrative, telling a story of the recent upheaval and regeneration in the life of a forest.
