Painting on Tree Stumps: Honouring the Endings
Tree stumps..the ones we’ve taken down. The ones we’ve wanted to end or to stop growing.
Metaphorically every stump I see is the end of something.
Something no longer wanted. Something no longer alive.
Endings can be sad. Endings can be painful.
I saw the emptiness and decided to make something beautiful. Cement the ending. Honour the experience. Honour the ending.
The paint itself can end the growth. The painting itself can give it a burial.
Everything changes. Everything ends. Everything has a cycle.
Even dead tree stumps can become a work of art.
What ending do you want to honour?
A tree, a life, a relationship, a time in your life, a habit, a dream..an illusion?
Want it to be meaningful?
Go paint a tree stump.
Remember every ending makes for a new beginning
