No Poem as lovely as a Tree

At one of the hockey rinks we play games at
there is this

So perfect for climbing and hiding in.

This tree me and my siblings would be all over!

I love how it reaches it's branches down.. inviting kids and the young at heart to crawl in it's arms.

If only I were small again!

I could fit in it's trunk--

what a great hiding place....

I accepted the challenge over at Art-n-sewl to be creative weekly.... (it kinda goes along with my creative identity goal.. I've been blabbering about.. one of my new years resolutions... bla bla...)

I took some time to play with photo shop and enhance a portrait of this beautiful tree.
When I say beautiful-- I acknowledge- it's kinda mangled and ugly
with all it's twists and knots...
it looks like an old dinosaur almost..
it's probably as old as a dinosaur...
but it's the LOVE...
that makes it beautiful.

If you stand next to it--
you cannot resist it

to hang off it's odd shaped branches

I don't even know really what I did...

I just kept trying different techniques..

until I got this ..
But I love the texture... it kinda looks like a Seurat Dot painting... especially the background.

Yeah! I really like it!

I might have to get a hard copy and frame it!
