Floodwaters regularly inundate trees that grow beside the Susquehanna River. The flooding erodes the riverbank and exposes the roots of the tree. I am inspired by how the trees still survive after so many storms. In this series, I tried to capture the grit, the steadfastness, of these trees, and the foundation these roots provide to the tree to withstand enormous flows. I tried to show the relative permanence of the tree, yet these are temporary and sooner or later will succumb to a flood. There is meaning in this for our lives, in how we humans are inundated with tribulations and with the right supports, we endure.
