Subterranean

I had lots of fun with this one. I also included a willow tree in memory of all the willow trees that where cut down around our local lake, to extend the BART train tracks. So sad, but I guess that's "progress" for ya... Thanks for any comments and for stopping by!!

This is one of your best yet! A few more months of this and you are going to be able to publish your own book of this stuff!

I love this piece, but I think what makes it really successful is the little weinerdog looking down into the hole, tying both scenes together. Very clever idea!

This is so sweet! I love how there is so much going on! We had a willow tree in our back yard on our farm when I was small. It was huge and glorious! Someday, I'd like to have one in my background.

This is absolutely DARLING! There's so much to enjoy here -- the beautiful tree (sob sob), little doggie and his buried treasure, the wee critters enjoying their tea. Fantastic stuff! I love your style.
