Using a handmade marking brush: the handle is made from bamboo and jute twine, with a few threads of coloured yarn. The brush is from cut-up strands of guitar chords. The India ink pooled onto the thicker cords and left drips on the paper, which the finer chords were able to move around. I saw the tree emerge as I sped-up my brushstrokes.

The Judas tree or hanging tree idea is entirely due to the timing of having recently watched The Last Temptation of Christ. Had I been reading The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein, I might have seen it differently. Please allow yourselves to see whatever kind of tree you wish.
