Ellen Sinel: Paintings

current work: Trees Series

My current series of tree paintings continues many of the themes of past work:  a sense of mystery, and of images altered by time and movement.  Like grasses in the “Spartina” series, trees represent endurance, change, and the ability to cope with elements of nature. My most recent paintings, entitled “Trees from a Moving Train” create a feeling similar to that of images and thoughts passing quickly through our lives.  There is sometimes a sense of place, sometimes not.
