It is a favourite of all natural shapes, reaching to the heavens, gnarled yet true, solid and secure, this is indeed a tree for all moods. The painting is representing the colors and textures, mood and thoughts of a lush summer-autumn landscape. The autumn vibes are hitting me directing me to paint autumn colors thoughts and mind-wandering waves. As John Muir wrote, "...to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease". Take a look and give your mind its freedom to dream.
