Carpe Noctem

I realized this evening that I stay up much later than I used to. I wanted to work on this image tonight because I just love the trees. The next thing I knew it was after midnight again! If you ask me, I think all of the lines from the leafless branches seem to make their own […]

Upside Down

One thing I am really grateful for this past year is living with my mom. Besides the fact that we keep each other company (and […]

Rainy Days

Trees, by Joyce Kilmer I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast. A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray. A tree that may in Summer wear A nest of […]
