Flame tree, Dream tree.

Two of my paintings in a series on trees.

my magic bluebird sits quietly

“The best way to find out things, if you come to think of it, 
is not to ask questions at all.
 If you fire off a question, it is like firing off a gun;
 bang it goes, and everything takes flight and runs for shelter.
 But if you sit quite still and pretend not to be looking, 
all the little facts will come and peck round your feet, 
situations will venture forth from thickets and
  intentions will creep out and sun themselves on a stone; 
and if you are very patient, 
you will see and understand a great deal more than a man with a gun.” 
 Elspeth Huxley

I am always happy when you comment. It gives me the push to go on painting, writing. Thank you so much!
