Every Tree Tells A Story

Artist's Description

Nature provides me with many materials to create my painterly abstracts. Given the myraid of imagery in bark, rocks, plants and other natural forms, sometimes I feel like the camera is my brush. Some of nature’s elements provide more hidden illustrations under the veneer of peeling park. This bark abstract is a good example. The small part of the tree that I photographed had great texture, colors and imagery to inspire your imagination. I am interested in your projections on this canvas and the more you look the more images appear. The first image I saw was a feline on the top center moving toward the right. There are usually faces like the large textured blue head on the far left and right. The large images usually pop out at me before I take the photograph and when I spend time looking at the smaller images, I see a microcosm of a village. Sally Omar’s poetic vision adds a wonderful dimension to this image. She is a gifted poet on RB and if you have not read her poetry, I highly recommend that your enjoy her eloquent words.

Every tree tells a story..that is for sure
It shows me a picture and opens a door
A man on horseback is what I see
The horse in a raging fit on the tree
Not happy he saw a wolf on the lane
Afraid he might hurt him..in mental pain
The man tries to calm him but to no avail
He cannot get him to move on the trail
The horse eventually will calm down
The wolf will ignore him and walk around
The man will lovingly understand
Because the horse has a soul similar to man
Sally Omar
