Illustration Friday - Time

Oak ATC colored pencil on tempera

To me, an old tree is a symbol for time. Not the sprout, the sapling, nor even the young tree, but the old tree, gnarled and strong. Even after someone cuts it down, we can see the passage of years in its rings.

The top picture I drew today, specifically for IF. The ones below are from my previous work.
