acrylic on canvas canvas (roughly 30x40", I'll need to find the size)
Yggdrasil started as a challenge to myself - to draw the largest tree I've done. I took my largest canvas, some black paint, and began. I inserted oval shapes to act as orbs or light or as energetic vibrations broadcasting from the tree. These became realized as I added colors and layers. When deciding on a name, I remembered Yggdrasil, from Northern Mythology. I was fascinated with the idea of a huge tree that touches not only the heavens, but all the worlds and lands that exist. Including the name added another layer of myth and epic energy to the piece.
