The Illustration Friday word of the week is tall.
I live in the middle of a small clearing (translation: logged) in the middle of a forest of very tall pines, cedars, madrones and oaks. I love the sound of the wind blowing through them, but not the perpetual feeling of being surrounded (translation: trapped, stuck, pinned down). Daylight is shorter here too. Generally speaking, a bit oppressive. So I can well imagine how this little tree might feeling…
Perhaps if I was more a bit more relaxed, I would feel sheltered instead? Hmmm.
** Watch for my “Up-and-Coming-Illustrator” feature coming out next Sunday (September 2) at the always wonderful and informative blog, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Look for the post and link here at my blog next Sunday, or go directly to 7-Imp (as it’s nicknamed) to read the feature. Double yay!
