Photo of uprooted tree in local Brungerley Park

Here’s a shot of the uprooted tree from the park. It was the storms of last week that did it apparently. I was shocked because it’s one of the trees that I drew for my piece ‘Strong Trees,’ so they’re not as strong as I thought. The roots were surprisingly short. The tree is an evergreen and was very high. They don’t bend easily when the storm hits. A bit of a metaphor I’m thinking. May revisit and draw this for my response for the ‘Anxiety Release’ collaboration I’m doing with Artipeeps from Cambridge. I’ll share the drawing ‘Strong Trees’ that I made a while ago and chose for my background image on twitter by coincidence.
