Single Tree

I am one single tree,grown tall with complicated patterns,one strong tree colorful and free.
I am one Tree, standing tall with whispering leaves.
I am one Tree who has whispered and spoken up loud depending on the wind, a tree who has found a place to just hang out in silence,the whispering has stopped for now because there is no breeze to make her sing.

MONA
I love your art! You are drawing from nature's patterns to make your own - and she will love that.
I really enjoyed this post.

P.S. If you wanted to you could make this prose into a poem by simply breaking the last comments of yours up into single thought lines. It would make a very special poem of Mona.

woops forgot to say this to you Delwyn ..

You asked: how did I do this ..my answer would be,
extreme patience because every line or and dot I secondly covered with ink to make the color come out more I have done a few paintings like this when I first discovered acrylic paints,before I only painted with water colors but have always used black ink to give it more accent and in some case movement.
