Art (“Esperanza” 36×48″ Oil on Canvas) and story by Margaret Biggs

“Esperanza” was influenced by the Expressionistic Movement of Northern Europe.These artists set realism aside in order to better express their inner life, personal ideas, and emotions. 
 
In this new painting, the trees are sentient beings evoking the emotions of waiting, striving and hope. Together they gather, a community striving to live a life of service, no matter what their occupation may be.  


“All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.” Alexandre Dumas
 
“Esperanza” is a girl’s name of Spanish origin meaning “hope, expectation”.

I LOVED doing my “Exploring Calligraphic Lines Thru the Trees” Workshop. 

I enjoyed giving them a new project each week of different tree styles & techniques. They all picked their own wording to go with each design.


Students have sent fabulous feedback and are still posting – we have a FB group for them. So happy that it went well!! I would love to do it again for other groups in the future.  


I truly believe, we were all connected because of the subject – everyone had such a beautiful feeling for the trees and the energy they all brought to the class. I was blown away and truly amazed.

Every year I anticipate the bark shedding from my 5 crepe myrtle trees. It’s rich in texture and color and I enjoy looking at it. 


When I picked up the bark, however, I felt sad about the current state in California, where again, the forests have burned, out of control, 3.5 million acres, the worst in the state’s history. 

Even though many trees can regrow, I felt empathy for their forced plight. I photographed the bark pieces and wrote a haiku verse with the 5-7-5 syllables: 


“Bark, once shed with grace

Now destroyed by fire’s blaze.

Rise again, beauties!”

I looked up at a tree on the full moon one night, and just stared at the top of the tree for maybe ten minutes, the branches seemed to wave back and forth and transform, I then felt my stomach expand, and a cord of energy formed from my stomach to the tree and I suddenly felt a massive, but slow pulse beating through my body, I intuitively knew I was feeling the pulse of the trees life force and then a kind of voice boomed through my body and spoke the words love..peace..harmony..in to my mind. It was such a profound spiritual moment that I felt the desire to just fall to my knees and say a prayer of thanks, I just felt completely in awe..I had never experienced connecting with a tree before, and have tried many times since, but unable to do it again!
