Cut down from her stand, the tree weeps for her old life, unknowingly, her tears water a flower which blooms to a glow, and the tree knows she too, will grow again in time.

I found an old diary of mine with a little sketch like this drawing and the words "let your tears be the rain which waters your soul" I didn't even remember drawing it, but it hit me hard when I found it. I've come really far, but my tree is still a sapling, and easily bent. I try and nourish it as best I can, and sometimes tears really can help :)

I didn't want her crying in this though, it's when she realises everything will be okay, because things grow anew. Must be 30+ hours work in this, though it was mostly done on one layer... Messed around with lots of brushes, was enjoyable to use texture :nod:

She is not an ent or a groot, or anything not from my imagination, she is a symbol, for things growing again :heart:

Peace, love and stripping back the bark,

I found you on facebook and searched through your prints - and then fell in love with this one <3
Not only because I love the colour green and the woods, but also for the message you send with this picture - or what I think the message is. Even if things are the worst and seem to be shattered everything goes on - sometimes it changes in shape, but it still goes on.

This might be my favorite all time art piece.  DEFORESTATION how it has hurt the forests, jungles, the animals, plants, and us and we lie to ourselves that it doesn't.  In the end if worse comes to worse humanity and animals may perish, but nature will find a way to bring back her beloved trees, and flowers. >^,^<  

It also speaks to how a women may be cut down and abuse or almost killed but we can come back stronger.
