Nature Speaks

I created this for a “contest”, alas, I did not get in 😦 but that’s Okay. I love to be given a “theme” to create. I love a challenge. This challenge was about Nature and how it speaks. I am in love with trees, even the dead ones. I wanted to create a picture of blending the dead with the mother, the tree that has given it’s all in life but still quietly looks on still keeping it’s beauty, just a different kind now. It’s always hard putting your vision out there and hearing back the, “NO”… but, that’s life and art. Doesn’t matter what type of artist you are, a writer, painter, photographer, quilter, dancer, poet, we’re always subject to someone else’s opinions. The bottom line of an artist is, we create what we like, what moves us, it is an expression of what we see, feel and experience. What we hope, is that others will appreciate it. Sometimes they do and sometimes they do not.

She's watching, she's given all that she has... what will you give back.

Nature Speaks to me in this way, how does it speak to you?

    Wow, I love the painting! I am like you, love nature and how it speaks to me! I totally agree about trees being so expressive.

    I also agree with you that as artists, we dread the “NO”. But it shouldn’t dampen our art. Instead it should move us forward because we are expressing the world around us. 🙂

    1. thank you friend, and I’ll never ever give up 🙂

  2. I too love trees and sometimes especially the dead ones…I love your painting. Thank you for sharing
