The thin strokes of the lines you created, that's quite representative of gentleness. Did you intend on having it reversed, looks to be the infamous Arbor vitae?

yes the tree was reversed for this photograph, good eye.
It's the maple tree outside my parent's house.
I've been meditating on the term 'mineral roots' lately and flipped it over for that purpose.

It makes more sense to me to imagine it as a taproot though, and the leaves as little pockets of vitals/minerals that the tree/bush/vegetable is living on/eating.
I like it better as the tree though.

But I had no intention of creating any kind of gentleness with the strokes.
I appreciate your point of view though.


thanks for the comment!

Well, yes, that's the point isn't it Kiorionis, we don't intend but the subconscious does habitually. Rorschach, as well as others, have sure made an enterprise out of it.

Drawing nice but the best thing is the presentation of how you have nailed it up. It reminds me of how Vincent van Gogh used to paint on his frames, but few remain as art galleries replaced them with normal frames. The environment/surroundings can add to a picture.

:cool:
