Make Way for Nothing Good

The Jewish Community Center across from one of my Starbuck haunts in Levittown. This nice tree was cut down a few weeks after I drew it.
I better be careful what I draw.

I also drew this scene of the Jewish Community Center on Hempstead Turnpike in Levittown but I left out the tree. When I saw your drawing of the same view I was shocked and appalled as I hadn't even seen it. Perhaps it was a psychic experience as the tree came down a few weeks later.

Is it time for a Kay blog? I know, just what you need. Another project.

Are you sure you never have been to Goettingen? Maybe you drew a picture of the formally beautiful treelined street in the old part of Goettingen. The city decided to go on a tree-butchering phase and left only peach-fuzzed stumps. I knew someone in Ashland, Oregon who was an artist at tree-trimming. He could trim the tree, leave its beauty intact, but at the same time he created open spaces to let the sunlight through. Isn't that what we really want? What with global warming (refuted by the GWB administration) we need every tree we can get!

It is within the Power of Art, to make trees disappear. Who knew?
