Description I once saw this splendid old apple tree, which had split and grown two thick trunks up and around each other, to form an opening. It brought to mind some kind of fairy tale where one could look through this portal and see something unearthly. Here is the apple tree on a wild summer day.
F.T. McKinstry, New England Member Since September 2007 Artist Statement I am a fantasy author who loves to paint. Writing and painting work together nicely; one inspires me to do the other. Endlessly fascinated by woods, gardens, birds, wild animals, the sun, moon and stars, I like to put to canvas, or in words, inner landscapes done in rich colors and a mysterious feel inspired by fairy tales, myth, legend and imagination.
