Artist Statement
"I love developing unique ways in which to paint and discover. Sometimes, the simplest gesture of lifting one's head exposes you to fascinating and singular visions. The painting of this great majestic tree started as a modest plein air, just outside the entryway to ALFA. Initially, I blocked in shapes and natural designs. The gestures eventually turned into an expressive portrait of the tall pine. As clouds pass in the sky, and people live their everyday lives, the tree leans towards the light. It grows more beautiful each day, taller and wiser. We often forget to raise our heads up. I would encourage you to do so. Otherwise, you risk the spectacle of beautiful vast skies, the eternal shine of millions of stars or perhaps even this majestic tree, bathing in the sun."
—Nikita Budkov
