Absolute: Nostalgia is a deep painting from a deep place. Three ginkgo biloba leaves, yellowed and fallen, arch their way down the center of a walnut panel. Flanking the ginkgo are a set of baby’s breath flowers angling in from the lower right corner. Tucked neatly at the bottom of the foliage is a small black card. Draping down from the top are clusters of vibrant red-orange berries; fruit from the green hawthorn tree. Subtle color changes to the wood grain show a neatly vertical composition. A gradient of rectangles  radiate from the center. Watch how it was made and see more images below the article.
