I always enjoy walking through unfamiliar neighborhoods. I grew up in the suburbs of Denver and I have an affinity for these sorts of constructed residential environments. In this particular neighborhood, where I encountered this truly exceptional bush (shrubby, tree-ish, bush-monster), everything was over the top. There were 15 foot tall, perfectly rectangular hedges dividing the yards. I saw at least 20 plants and trees that I’d never seen before. There were stalky, awkward palm trees and shaggy pines growing in the same front yard. It was all perfectly extravagant and I felt just like a little kid wondering at all the incomprehensible abundance of life. I made four works on paper, including this drawing, all based on the hour I spent meandering through that neighborhood.
