Self-portraits with Asian Bittersweet, the staging continues . . .

I have been doing self-portraits with the Asian Bittersweet. I’m always ready to take a good look at myself and how I fit into this place I live. Often engrossed with “fitting” as I pull down these invasive vines from big old trees. How can I have an affect on such a huge, overwhelming and invasive mass of vines?

At the same time, I can’t help but admire this fast growing plant - the enthusiasm, the joie de vivre, the energy, pride, the embracing of all and everything with absolutely no discernment. It makes itself at home everyplace and everywhere - its roots snake in all directions as its greenery curls and unfurls climbing up towards the light.
