Artist's Description

"Trees" Splash red - A rush of autumn leaves that Bled away their beauty as they Died upon the breeze. Frost. Leaves lost. Stocky frames - Thinning at the dendrites - Animate their colour under dusk: A paling brown, Emerging grey - Deeper, darker - Leads to black: Silhouettes braced for winter, Like monuments of hardiness Against the freeze. Barely hanging overhead, charcoal-grey chassis Buckle under silent flow of ever-stacking billows While stings in the face foretell the ice-blight. An arrow-bound wind builds, Penetrating flesh, Whistling out its warning To the nakedness of winter woods - Fair-weather green coats too fickle for the stay. Summer died upon another eon. Autumn scampered from the chill. But the trees fought back; upheld their dignity - No fuss, pomp, or thrill. Copyright ￿ Mark R Slaughter 2010

About Guy Ricketts

Guy Ricketts

I graduated from Madonna University in 1988 with a BA in Commercial Art and one credit hour shy of a BA in Fine Art. I love taking pictures. It is an addiction. I have my camera with me EVERYWHERE, and I often see an irresistable shot practically EVERYWHERE. It's fun. It's exciting. Capturing an image that freezes a moment, holds an interesting visual and often puts an artistic spin on the everyday sights is just plain fun. And I love it. Having others see my pictures and enjoying them makes it all the more pleasant and enjoyable. That's how I went from buying my first digital camera a couple years ago to posting my photos on Fine Art America. I consider this a healthy addiction, and I doubt there is a cure. At least I wouldn't want to...
