10/13/20 Maple Leaf neighborhood
Probably my longest-standing series of sketches has been trees that have been hacked, dismembered and otherwise poorly pruned to accommodate utility wires. Some have been humorous, while others have been ironic. This one must be among the most bizarre.
You can see its trunk at far right just behind the nearest car. But the branches shading the street have now grown their own pointy leader! From a block away, I thought the tree was floating in mid-air!
I could see that several wires were passing through the tree, so it’s likely that it will receive another hack job one of these days.
