very very old tree

I wanted to paint Jerry’s tree from Jordan’s old survival series for nostalgia’s sake and I’m pretty satisfied with the results

Also the reason why this is blob shaped is because I literally just coloured in a blob at the corner of my canvas (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

So I’m thinking about elements and directions/quarters (because have you seen this video from Molly Roberts?! Urban/City witchery at its finest!)

And I realize that there were two very old, very large trees near my house up until recently. One a block directly to the north that was struck by lightning, and one a block directly to the south that was blown over in a wind storm.

Hmm…

2) The sun, running away, a teddy bear

3) A mug of hot chocolate, a wish to die, a mantra

4) A very old book, a tree, a flute
