Tree

On its side, it’s very pod-like.  I have an artist friend who creates large (5-6′ tall) pods from natural and manufactured materials both. They are powerful.

Big pods are very evocative.   They seem a bit menacing even when the colors are soft and natural.  Perhaps they are reminiscent of beds, coffins, caves, devouring mouths, and (of course?) sexual parts. But that’s the last thing I thought of!

This one is about texture that evolves (devolves?) from age and weather and stress.  With the shadows emphasizing it all, don’t you think?
