I see s story of our dreams here and I like your digital collage – the leaves remain colorful till now. That’s inspiring. Your picture gives a lesson of art rehabilitation

Thanks, Tomas. I suppose that in many ways, our pictures are our dreams made visible to others.

Not sure what a basia tree actually looks like, but your version sure makes it colorful with nice textures.

Eric Edelman March 30, 2011, 5:03 pm

Nor am I, but the intent was to create a fun, free-wheeling, and slightly psychedelic treatment of the tree. Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for your visit and your comment!
