Tall oaks, maples, pines and all manner of trees surround me here in North Carolina. The trees in the northern Arizona desert are quite different - mesquite, pine and my favorite of all, the Arizona Sycamore. This large, sturdy looking tree has beautiful white bark. When the bark pulls back from the trunk of the tree the darker bark underneath is revealed.
The textures of this tree fascinate me. What pictures come to mind as I look at the images of light and dark? What stories could this tree tell me?
