Sisters

The little copper tree and the wood on which it sits were sent to me by Aleph. I added the birthday candle and the little figures (about 1/2 inch tall). This twisting tree reminded me of the Wallace Stevens poem On the Road Home. I tried something pretty simple with this- instead of blending bits of the three photographs I liked, I just stacked them, I think this reflects the mood of mutability in the poem.

What a wonderful picture. I love the way the green plants frame it. Layers of reality!
Don't we all need to hold our neighbour's hand and search for the light? oups, pathos alarm.

Wonderful - and thanks for the link to the poem.

I love those shadows on the top photo, and even how the wood grain works with the whole : every detail perfect.

wonder wanders through those changing layers, worlds of woods of words. Words cause metamorphosis, I liked the little tree holding a fire without burning, the poem is thrilling. It always amazes me the way you assamble thoughts and images and ideas. Your woods are springing forth wonder.
