It was a great tree to eat lunch under, a really fabulous tree, with a comfortable rock and roots to lean against if you wanted. Merrill was really glad he'd found it.

Funny thing, though, he'd been through here hundreds of times, and he could've sworn he'd never seen it before.
------------

Mixed media, again, acrylic and oil pastel, 14 x 18. This was so obvious I don't know why I never thought of it before--the trunk goes up, the rooty bits go down, it's JUST LIKE A SQUID! Obvious! Makes perfect sense! Right? Right.

Original is for sale, prints available, send me a note or visit [link] for pricing.

That was great. This is scary yet a genius piece of work. Not just the picture, but the little story that comes with it.

I'm going to be honest, Ive never trusted squids lol
And now they can become tree's?!
When did that happen haha
I'm going to be wary of all three from now on :P

It's a good thing squids are among my minions, or I'd have to say, "Eeek! don't let it get me!"
