The progress of an artist is a continual self-sacrifice, a continual extinction of personality.

In a work of art the past and the present fuse into a new compound.

New Growth

The tree in the photograph is rooted in an old stone dam. It is located on Atherton Brook on the western side of the Quabbin Reservoir in Pelham, Massachusetts. A large portion of the dam is collapsed. It is unclear whether or not it was partially demolished during the construction of the Quabbin, or if it was merely left derelict.
