Quabbin Shoreline Tree Grotesque
I had a period when I enjoyed doing pen and ink drawings and that drew me to Aubrey Beardsley. He described himself and many of his artworks as grotesque but I always found them beautifully drawn. Some are shown in the link but he did quite a number in his short lifetime…27 years and only a few of which were spent creating art. My tree is quite grotesque and compared to that his drawings most certainly are not. But his use of the word came to mind as I photographed and processed this so I used a bit of license in the title.
