drawing of a tree

About This Project

“Adrift in Life” is testimony to getting lost. I feel at times I tend to just be drifting through the days and getting loss in when I did what during the week. Epically during the ongoing pandemic days seemed to have started blurring together. When deciding what I wanted to draw I picked a tree i drew once before as I wanted to revisit it. It turn out to represent something quite meaningful to me once it was complete. When drawing this tree I notice myself drifting from branch to branch and getting lost into the tree itself. At times I’d just follow the branches over and over again which made me loose track of what branch I was drawing and how long I was drawing it for. The more I continue to draw and loose myself into the tree the more it made me just enjoy the tree for what it was. It may not have leaves or flowers in this moment but I could sense that this tree had character. After finishing it the dreariness of the drawing and being combined with being lost in the branches for hours just spoke to me. It made me think how during this pandemic all of us are drifting through life like leaves in the wind, waiting for when it will stop and let us touch the ground again. To me this drawing is a testament to being lost whether that’s in life or in a project. I feel during this time many of us may seem lost and the way out may not seem clear but eventually the branch will end and you will find your self again. -Michael J.H. Rosenstock
