Winter Tree

 
One icy cold night
when all was so still and white
you stood tall and bright.

I doubled this tree for more effect. A naked tree is so very beautiful spread high or twisted and gnarled like a wise old woman. I love trees in all seasons but especially in the Winter when they are bare and black against a pale blue wintery dusk sky, their branches twisting in all directions. Dear old trees, bless you each and every one.

I feel just like your trees Kat. It was 0F/-17C here yesterday and the wind howled all night. I will be glad for a bit of sun today. xox

Kat, I also love trees and actually shed tears when one has to be cut down! Your painting is beautiful and shows well the feeling you have expressed in your writing.

Kat, it's nice meeting you. I've been playing with the idea of making tree of life paintings for some time. And your sketches are quite inspiring.

Just gorgeous - love that icy blue sky and the bare trees. I don't like winter much - but a friend showed me the gorgeous symmetry of the winter trees as they reach up with their bare branches. Happy PPF
