Big old trees are wonderful things, long out-living us mere humans. Now it's been discovered that they can communicate with one another! This old oak is in Bushy Park, near Hampton Court. I isolated it in this image to highlight it's magnificent form. The pixels here range from about 2" (5 cm) square to very tiny; so tiny that it's more like classical pointillism in the foliage. In its black lacquered frame this has a zen-like oriental feel. Leaving primed raw linen showing around the edges draws attention to the materials that the work is made from and gives it a physical presence as an object, rather than just a picture.
