Carpenter Tree Three

This is the third painting in my "Carpenter Tree" series. When I went out to view this stump the following year it was gone. I was fortunate to have found it when I did. In all the years since I have never happened upon another such combination of a stump being returned to the earth with the assistance of carpenter ants.
