I find immense pleasure in capturing textures through painting, as it is at the intersection of realism and abstraction. In this particular artwork, I have solely depicted the peeling bark of a Crepe Myrtle tree. However, the arrangement and orientations of the shapes unequivocally convey its identity as a tree, thus lending a touch of realism. On the other hand, by zooming in on the bark's texture and color, losing volume, perspective, and the tree's overall form, a sense of abstraction emerges. This delicate balance between adhering to the constraints of realism while simultaneously transcending the boundaries of reality grants me a profound artistic fulfillment.
