This series is called "Bad Things Happen To Good Trees". I was on a bit of an environmentalism kick when I was painting them. It was going to be part of a larger series I've been working on this summer for a later show, but as things turned out, a gallery down in Texas was interested in exhibiting some of my work. I really didn't want to send down published illustrations but I felt conflicted about breaking up the series I was working on. In the end, I thought these four were a bit removed conceptually and visually from the others in the series so I let them go. It gives me the motivation to make more art!
