The Safest Place

In every forest, everywhere, life continues...

Like the trees that fall soundlessly when no one's around, the safest place is often right under your feet -- you don't know about it if you're not there.

Life is buried there lovingly by the hands of a Mother. She goes unannounced with her duties; quietly digging the soft, fertile earth so that the one acorn that was not stolen by the squirrels could find it's way into the ground.

I'm glad you saw something in her :)  She's always been one of my favorites, even after I sold her.

The trees are quite incredible. A lot of art in dA is quite gloomy or violent, so it's refreshing to find delicate, sunny, lush, fertile art. Featured [link]

Beautiful. . .

Its nice to know we haven't all forgotten where we came from, and who our true mother is.

I like the tiny bit of red on the flowering tree. The warm brown you used for the earth where the woman is growing really draws the eye.

shadowgirl's avatar
thank you :)
I try to have some bit of a story along with it.. I find it helps give it a bit more of a meaning, and spurs people to come up with their own ideas too :)
ChocolateDanish's avatar
It certainly does. It's obvious you have a strong respect for nature and that is something I value highly. :aww:
