Art Talk Tuesday: Double Banyon
I eventually painted the double banyon for my first solo exhibition in 2009, and in 2010 it found a home with a beautiful couple, Mr. and Mrs. H. One day I got a call from Mrs. H who saw the painting on my website and wanted to know if it was still available. She told me how the tree reminded her of her marriage, two big trees coming together in the middle to create something larger than life. I thought it was poetic and dropped off the painting later that week. Mr. and Mrs. H are still working on their home so it had not been hung, but they have promised to take a picture when it finally goes up.
