Trees, trees against the sky –
O I have loved them well!
There are pleasures you cannot buy,
Treasures you cannot sell,
And not the smallest of these
Is the gift and glory of trees….
So I gaze and I know now why
It is good to live – and to die….
Trees and the Infinite Sky
. Robert Service

A night sky in Autumn…where does the tree stop and the sky start?…is the tree the sky or the sky the tree?….they are lovers here, now, and forever more..

    Come to think of it, the tree leaves absorb the sunlight from the sky just as it lets the light shine through it, and in that sense they are one. Love the shades of orange and the light that is coming through yours; the tree becomes a night sky with stars itself.

  • This is my fave to date of my new collection…I just love the way it turned out…it was a glorious gift to me…thanks so much for the lovely compliment MuiLing….

    That’s a beauty, Janis. Love the blue. The fuzzy effect of the tree is nicely balanced with the striking, sharp blades of grass.

  • Thank you so much Frannie….lovely of you to feature it in Solo too……
