The illusion of a lone tree, windswept on a hill above a cold beach. Found on the abused and ruined top of a folding table where the laminate surface is flaking away from the wood substructure leaving pieces of hardened glue and wood exposed.

    OH wow another wonderful one. Love that tree on the hill, know how it feels getting windswept : )

  • Thanks, Karen! It seems very Japanese(y) to me! I can relate to that wind, too. But, I’m thinking of your trip and the blowing jackets hanging on!! LOL!

    Another gem, Susana! You are incredible. Reminds me of the stuff I found in the garage on the old wooden stepladder and old rusty trowel! You just never know where you will find art!

  • Dot, thank you so much!! Yes! I thought about your ladder! I don’t have a lot of wood images and I remember a piece you have from a ladder! I sat at this table all day and it was covered with papers and stuff… and then we cleaned it off to go and there were all these shapes!! You never know! Hey, there’s an echo in here!
