This is really beautiful. It's so fascinating to me how we all see something different in trees. I've been obsessed with them lately, myself. Your interpretation is gorgeous here. (The ex-teacher in me just has to tell you that you spelled 'preperceived' wrong. (i before e, except after c) sorry. :)

Happy to get that straight! That darned "c!" I should never spell before breakfast.

Thanks for looking here, Katherine!

Haunting piece..... piercing even (got my spelling right there I think...?)

Kind thanks, Ewen!

This is really a great piece! A rare example about how colours can create emotions and let us perceive a scene even without a precise description.
