Lorraine finds it thrilling that each painting she completes offers her something new to consider.
Currently, stumps of red pines and tree roots have a hold on Lorraine’s attention. She became fascinated by trees after walking the grounds of a local tree farm. To her, a simple stump serves as nourishment for new life. Considering how a tree at its prime would be cut down. As it decomposes it becomes a bed for a new tree seed, the perfect environment for moss or safe space for forest creatures. She was struck by all that which appeared dead, still provides so much life.
