Through the bush at the end of an over grown track I come across a huge old tree. Sunlight slips through the over growth and shines on long forgotten words.

'Remember Me'
'LOVE NOT WAR'
'PEACE'

Scared with these tokens of love and words of conviction, the tree stands strong, guarding it's secrets.

My new forever tree....

Oh that's gorgeous... at first it just strikes you as a very nicely done old tree standing in filtered soft sunlight and draws upon those associations but then you notice the words and the story takes additional depth as the tree as a sentry for wishes over the years.

I like this, very soft and free flowing in the up-close shots. When I've seen a very old tree, I've wondered of all the things and history that tree has seen--how many tales could be told. Nice.

Really like this - shape, colour idea treatment - lovely!

Re your words Scared with these tokens of love and words of conviction, - wondered if you meant Sacred rather than scared? Will edit it if you wish :)

Thanks everyone for the comments, I think half the fun of painting is seeing what other people think :wave:

Maureen thats so funny, amazing what a slip of the key board can do! Poor old tree, bad enough thats it's 'scarred' I didn't realise it was 'scared' :eek:

Yes could you please change it to scarred, next time I'll preview it better :o

Great feeling of proud old age in your tree. I also like that light coming through the forest and highlighting your tree. Very nice work indeed.
