When I started drawing my Sketchy Tree series a year ago, I had no idea that it would span this long and encompass so many drawings. The series has a total of 39 pieces of art – 13 large drawings of trees with exposed roots and 26 small drawings of interesting rock, roots, and plants along the trail.
Here is an update of the drawings that I’ve done since the last blog update in September:
Sketchy Trees Out in the World
I’m so thrilled with how much the series has been able to branch out to different places in the community. I’ve shown them in Elmira, Corning, Ithaca, Penn Yan, and Geneva! (Check out the events page for where to find artwork in person.)
About the Artist
Laura Jaen Smith is an artist who lives and works out of Horseheads, New York. Her inspiration comes from observing the beauty she sees around her. After a decade living out west, she returned back to New York State and started seeing the same old places with new eyes. She is most interested in capturing small moments in nature that might otherwise be overlooked.
