Tree Spirit

Tree Spirit


A tree spirit is a type of nature spirit, and effectively the “living soul” of a tree.
It has much in the way of wisdom and healing to offer those who are willing to listen and absorb.

-Louise Heyden

Beautiful lighting, colors, pov, and DD work, Pom! I always like the quotes and other information you add to your photos (including your own thoughts and poems). A two-for-one treat! :)

Hi Mare, Michelle, Monnie and Mumj!!! :D

Well, I had a tough time with this one. I made several renditions. I had certain criteria for her. She had to have hair, a neck. A body with clothes from nature...And she had to be looking way down.

I was able to do this several times over with the head all sizes and moved around but the tones in the face were the most difficult for me, and I tried many different colors...this seemed to be the right hue...I'd touch it up with a paintbrush if I could but I am happy with it. :))) I did what I set out to do. There were two others I liked a lot too and one funny one. Maybe I will post them here for you to see?

Thank you all for your most welcome feedback. :D

-Laura
