The beginning

Right now I popped into college today and got my studio organised so hopefully by the time I go in next Wednesday I should be able to start printing images of my lovely trees off and putting them all round it.  I posted a photo of the sort of images of trees I like - maybe some of you could tell me how you feel when your out walking in woods or how a tree makes you feel when you look up at it and its just so huge!!  I also put in a pic of one of my paintings that came out a bit blurred - sorry!  Anyway guys I'd also be grateful if you could tell me what part of the world your from - then I know where your trees are!!

Thank you to those of you who have already commented and making this very exciting for me - it only works with you guys commenting!! Also those of you who have left me your journal link I will be visiting you to make comments on your journals too.  I might even print out some of these comments and use them in my work - they are truly wonderful thank you to you all.  Love Laine xxx

How did you do that ?   !!put 2 pictures side by side ,and if no 2 is an example of your work I like it ...........Jan xx

Hi jeadie - thanks for your comment - to put the pictures side by side you just go into edit pictures when you have finished selecting the one you want - I just found it by chance.  Thanks for liking my painting - Im putting the painting aside for a bit as I lost the excitement and the point of painting them - really dont know what Im going to do next really.  This journal is a starting point though.

I feel as sense of not being alone when I walk among trees in the forest.   Each tree is another life force to reassure me of the presence of sustained life.   mark

I am surrounded by trees very old and very new. I have planted more than a dozen in and around our house.

I would love to live deep in a forest.

They are like cathedrals in majesty.

Thanks for dropping by Elaine!
My house is surrounded by Trees - but very bare at the moment!
I've always loved the countryside, but became more interested through my Partner and his interest... look forward to seeing more of your Work!

Oh man...trees...for me it's trees and clouds.  I have always been fascinated by all nature, but especially trees.  Maybe because they move most like us...or most notably like us when they are kissed by the wind.  I wanted to thank you for the silent inspiration to get my camera replaced...finally.  I am no great talent, but really enjoy being out in life trying to catch it on film. ;)  C.  http://journals.aol.com/gdireneoe/thedailies

Hi Elaine, nice to see a new face in J-Land, and one so near to me!! I live in Brighton,not too far from Hastings. I love trees too, I visited New England last October and Borneo in March last year. You'd love the rain forests of Borneo!! I have a private journal with lots of tree pics in, I can put you on my list of readers if you like. Good luck with your journal. Jeannette.

Hi Laine...

I am a lover of walks in the woods, photography, and my dog!!  I stumbled on your link in Celeste's journal and am excited to watch as your art emerges.  I certainly know that feeling of creativity screaming to find a way out.  Good luck with your new muse....and ENJOY!!

Hi!  I'm back.  Tagging is when one of the memes going around gets you "tagged" by another person to do it.  I had three different people say, "Tag!  You're it!"...hence the fifteen...  I am in Georgia BTW. ;)  C.  http://journals.aol.com/gdireneoe/thedailies
