Happy Trees

Okay, since nobody really liked the sad photo I did yesterday, I thought I should send a little more happiness and joy. I painted this while we watched a stupid movie last night. I like the trees, they look happy to me. Picasso once said, "The world doesn't make sense, so why should I paint pictures that do?"

I think that is why some of us want to draw and paint to create our own reality. We can for a short time change our reality by being totally absorbed in art. Some people drink or do drugs or travel to change their reality for a short time. Some people do art. It is my drug of choice. Not that my current reality is bad - it's wonderful. But I like to change it now and then - for the same reason I still climb trees- I like to get a different perspective on the world now and then.

art is my drug of choice too...love the trees in the painting or are they flowers or balloons :) anyway, love your use of color!

as for the recently released bird, he is not particularly ugly to me but then again, around here, I see this everyday...they love to fly into my windows and succumb quickly...I have not figured out why they keep doing this but I do wish they would stop it!
