Moving right along with another work completed in my Reading a Garden series. You could get lost in the intricacy of this one. I've been painting it for months when the mood hit me. It isn't the kind of painting you can execute in a week. The vines draw you into their maze.
When I came across this vine clinging to the side of a stone wall I was reminded of circuits, wires etc. . The sending of information is part of life in the natural and man made world. Plants have life pathways just as humans do. Sometimes these pathways wither and new ones grow, information is re-routed, the job of growth continues.
When I imagine the world wide web, I conjure up this kind of image of lines going off is all directions, layered and complicated.
