The tree which moves some to tears of joy, is in the eyes of others,
only a green thing that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and some scarce see Nature at all.
But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is Imagination itself
.
William Blake, 1799, The Letters…

Imagination" is part of the series “The Trees”, all the seasons together, inspired by the Green movement, and painted in Watercolour on Arches Hot Pressed Paper….

    I part the out thrusting branches
    and come in beneath
    the blessed and the blessing trees.
    Though I am silent
    there is singing around me.
    Though I am dark
    there is vision around me.
    Though I am heavy
    there is flight around me
    …Wendell Berry

    Beautiful Indeed.
    “Nature is Imagination ITSELF”

  • Thank you so much Steven….there is nothing like a tree, and I paint so many of them, I have to stop my self from giving into temptation each time and doing yet another tree painting…I succumbed and let the inspiration take over during the night when the world around me was asleep a few days ago….I’m really happy you like it.

    What can I say, I am a TreeHugger. :-)

  • I can’t wait for RB to bring out the book soft ware, so I can put all my trees together…I just looked through all my pages here, and it seems like I have about a million of them, in every guise from real to abstract and in every season…. :))) I guess that means I’m a tree hugger too.
