Littletree’s Big Tree

Littletree’s been working on an art project for a while. One day, she decided she wanted to paint a mural of a tree in her room, so the awesome goddessmother Lady Demelza took her out to get some appropriate supplies, and helped her get set up.

Littletree stood a while, staring at the blank wall, pondering

Lady Demelza had assumed that Littletree would direct, and Lady Demelza would end up doing a lot of the painting, but that wasn’t to be. Littletree just wanted someone to keep her company, and to take a lot of photos of the process (with her phone).

So off she went…

There were many trips to the opposite wall to stand back and get perspective

And careful attention to detail

She had to climb on her bunk to get the higher branches

Always checking the form and shape

And like any tree… slowly, it grew

She mixed her colours

And the tree grew and grew

At some point, she decided to get a step-stool for height, Littletree was of the opinion that hanging off the bunk bed wasn’t stable enough.

And the tree grew

And grew

Leaves were added, and then it was time to take a break.

So the tree sat… seasons changed, winter turned into spring… and then, one day, Littletree announced that her tree was finished.

  4. Finally, a tree that reaches to Heaven. Jacob was never entirely happy with his ladder. Little Tree you are the
    Maestro of Treedom!!! Magnifique! Wunderban! Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious! And simply superb.
    I love the blog, Majik Faerie, the story unfolding...wonderful commentary...and in fact, I'm working on a painted tree hack, a prototype of a tree that tells the time using drops of dew and a wristwatch. More to follow..
