''Ghost Ship'', depicts one of the last standing white pines of its size on Stillwater Reservoir in the Adirondacks. A ranger pointed it out to me two years ago, and that was when I first recognized it for its scale and age, but I also realized I’d been looking at it my whole life, whenever we took our boat up the reservoir and back. Its presence haunts memories of hot summer days finding secluded beaches to land on and spend afternoons. The tree is alone in a sea of younger trees. The thin, spindly trees in the foreground are there to create a tenuous imbalance between the weight of the canopy and what holds it up. Errant pencil marks and washy paint contribute to the feeling of fragility of the younger trees and the weight of what they hold.
