Greenbrae Duff, Watercolor, archival pigmented print on Arches paper and framing Plexiglas, 41.5” 32.5”
Lauren R Stevens, writer and environmentalist, describes the importance of duff, “Trees remove carbon from the air. Old trees remove more carbon than young ones. Furthermore, old forests with their deep layer of duff, store as much carbon on the ground as in the trees." With the advent of climate change due to the increase of carbon, forests’ roles are significant. Leaves are painted floating to form duff; drawings of seedpods are printed on the framing Plexiglas.
