Is it really Friday already????

Hi guys, here are a few of the pics I took today when I was out on my walk - just a few - I took 60 - dont think you want to see all of them!  Anyway, I was really pleased with what I got and printed them all off - then Im going to put them all over the wall - study them and maybe come up with a painting.  I might even think of doing some sort of sculpture.  I spoke to one of my friend's today and I said to her that the tutors keep asking why am I so interested in trees.  She said that I should be strong and tell them how I feel - otherwise they bully you into not believing in your own work.  I believe that the trees are strong and powerfully project into the sky and nothing can stop them.  I love their strength and power but at the same time their delicacy and the beautiful way they dance. When I am among the trees and stare up at them I feel safe - they are my safety net my security from the scary world that's out there. 

Anyway, I've got to really believe that what I'm doing is right and be strong about it - I've got a seminar next week - we have to talk and show our work that we have done so far this term - I better get my skates on - it's taken me this long to get my wall up and a bit of studio space sorted.  Anyway sorry Im waffling!!! LOL

Well I can't believe it's Friday again - where does the week go?  I have got to work tomorrow - then I'm going to visit my Mum and Dad on Sunday with my two boys - John just has his eldest son here for the weekend so it will give him time to be with him on their own.  Then on Monday evening we are going to see John's daughter - I really can't wait to see her - really looking forward to it. 

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Love Laine xxxx

Hello! Laine
Love the 'photos, I must admit I didn't 'notice' Trees until I met Allan, he loves them, he'll often collect seeds, and try anything. I learnt from him really! Our first holiday together was in the Scottish Highlands, so - beautiul Trees!
Have a good weekend...

I agree Laine,
Trees symbolize strength to me as well. I use them often in writing poetry. Plus, keep in mind a tree normally has a longer life span than a human.
Great pictures. Thanks for sharing.
Happy Weekend To You Too!

You stick to your guns over liking trees, don't see anything wrong in it! Trees are remarkable in that they live so long . Just imagine what they have lived through in history. Shame they can't talk to us. Have a good weekend. Jeannette.
