Cannot help the Blues!
oil on stretched canvas 60×60cm
Inspired by the fruit bats that breed under our roof, and sometimes circle over my bed, so cannot fall asleep…! Birds we breed and I feed and bats that eat together our fruits from the trees. Therefore I have to buy ours in a shop!
“S” for “Success” to all fruit eaters, only the best is good enough!

By Crisman Art

I am the Tree of Paradise
Deep into Earth and up to heaven I rise
My trunk is straight and just
In all four elements I trust.

While wind, fire and water roll their dice
My roots and crown grow likewise
Equally all my veins do multiply
Above and below they evenly justify.

I bear now fruits of great surprise
For those who eat, it makes them wise
I offer them all to the DIVINE
From where I grew – I now align.

Now stretching into UNITY
Connected fruits as you and me
Becoming now a COSMIC TREE
Harvested by God, and finally FREE!

  • Thank you dearest friend Marian! Was so struggling with this one, the bat especially. One of ours was hanging over the mirror but could not make out her line work…than on Sunday a movie on bats…good study…and finally yesterday did the last strokes. Transformation and re-birth, a good positive sign. Was basically buried alive here on the property since Marcus died…! NEW HOPE with the start of a new World Year 2013.

    Beautiful Christiane!! It gives me a feeling of looking at life itself when life is happy :))

  • I was happy when I painted it, beautiful Elizabeth…trying to accept the fruit bats that nest under our roof, trying to make peace with them after cleaning their dropping every morning. Was thinking about their wings and birds wings, both love fruits. Spirit and Resurrection. Your words are so uplifting and encouraging. Thank you so much also for the Fave! Sending you sunny hugs from Christiane
