See the Forest for the Trees II

Just in time for ARTrails Open Studios I finished the companion piece.  If I knew how, I would place them here side by side, which is how I will hang them.  But, well, here’s the first one (or maybe the second?):

And the question hangs there – Do either one of these figures see the forest for the trees? Or are they even separate from the trees they see?    I always hate to impose my own stories on images like this that I wish for others to enjoy.  I never paint in order to tell a story, but the story comes out on its own as the painting resolves itself. . .eventually.  Some of them never do resolve and you can bet those won’t see the light of day at Open Studios!
