The maple tree in this painting stood in a field of stones that Rock Creek dumped during intense flooding. The force of the raging water had pushed hard against the tree, nearly uprooting it. Something about the field of stones, the flood-battered tree, the surrendering of leaves, and the dawning day spoke to me of forgiveness. By the time the painting was done, I felt clean and released from a long-held resentment I had been carrying, just as the creek and river were cleaner than they had been in decades after those storms, swept clean of debris, the water radiant and crystalline.
