‘Jolly Good Woods’ – Day 201/36

‘Jolly Good Woods’ – Day 201/36

I know an ‘Elsa’ (and no, she’s not the one from Frozen 🙄). Today we walked in some woods together.⁠
.⁠
At one point I lay in the pine needles – they looked so content in their patch of sunlight and I wanted some of that for myself. While I was becoming one with the forest floor it occurred to me that pine needles are just a great many tiny trees on their sides. Or, looking up that the pine trees are just really large upright standing pine needles. Then it occurred to me that I could maybe use the same techniques I’ve started using for grasses for trees, albeit slightly amended. It was an odd moment, with odd thoughts.⁠
.⁠
Seeing me lying there in my patch of sun, Elsa remarked, “that looks jolly good!”.⁠
.⁠
And so I came home to paint that thought of jolly good woods. (And I made them frosty blue – because 1) have you felt the weather outside today? and 2) can you ever have enough double-entendres?)⁠
