Dead Wood

in #art5 years ago



I saw a tree that was still standing but every inch of it looked dead, like all the life had been sucked out of it. The branches were an inky black, and at the tips it looked like drooping fingers that had dropped its final leaves.

Hi @opheliafu ,I see the feet that the tree supports, and I assimilate your concept, I think of the life that inexorably passes by giving each experience, making in us a trace of lived moments, just like the tree from which fibers have been extracted for any use , Like some of us still standing .
Blessings and happy week to you and yours.

Hi @martha75, thanks for sharing these thoughts with me.

Nature often provides good inspiration for artistic work. Its neat how there is often beauty in atrophy

Breathtaking views of frost covered red bracken this morning as I was driving in the car.

I can see you're still super creative 👌. Although I haven't been around for many months, it's so nice to see some things are still the same. Great feeling!

What an awesome concept with the feet! Love it!
