A Poke Tree




The artist makes no attempt at naturalistic representation. The trunk is a hurried brown elipse; the foliage nothing more than a slash of green, almost an afterthought. Grant is clearly only interested in conveying the extreme pokiness of his subject. The branches are violent slashes; the crayon dripping with emotion. Haunting.
