I originally started this shortly after the tornado hit Nashville in March 2020 & I needed to process my feelings. The Tulip Poplar, our TN state tree, was extensively used by the pioneers of the state to construct houses, barns, and other necessary farm buildings. My original intention was to illustrate a piece that signaled a strong rebuild in the face of what middle TN went through. Now it’s more of a symbol of a place I hope all of us are safe inside of during isolation and social distancing. Looking towards the blooms and wishing you peace today. Home together under the tulip poplar.
