:) Well, it is a tough choice because sometimes I'd like to be just a tree and to have a lot of time for meditation and other times I'd love to be a bird and fly ....... It is impossible for me to decide right now. In fact I'd love to have both : roots and wings. Exceptional work !!!!!! It really makes me think to so many things. Another f,v. :)

Ana Maria, daca am invatat ceva in cei (multi) ani de cand sunt pe lumea asta e ca una din cele mai generale trasaturi umane (si f. induiosatoare) este cea descrisa de Ion Neculce (sau Grigore Ureche sau Miron Costin...) cand vorbea de prizonierii polonezi pusi sa are ghinde dupa Codrii cosminului: Cand ii batea cu biciul zicea ca mai bine sa-i impunga cu sulitza si viceversa. Noi vrem mereu ce n-avem si niciodata nu suntem multumiti cu ce unul care am imigrat acu 15 ani, o stiu...Poate de aia a progresat rasa omeneasca. Daca o fi progres ca nici de aia nu suntem siguri... Multumesc mult de aprecieri si numai bine tie si alor tai!

Wow! Such a thought provoking piece, and so well executed ! Now featured on the group homepage of Whimsical Paintings : )

I'm honored and very pleased you like it, Oiyee!

Bucharest, Ro - Romania

Outstanding painting and concept, Danu !!!!!! Deeply thought provoking.... I feel myself a slave of my roots, indeed. Till now ( when I see your work ) I thought it is a good thing 'cause my roots are a part of my ''quidditas'', but now I have to think more about this... :)... Simply brilliant !!!!!! f,v

Thank you, Ana Maria! I thought about it too (I suppose roots can be good...) but answer this question: what would you prefer and how would you be freer: as a tree or as a bird? Maybe flying is something to consider....

Toronto, ON - Canada

Oh, my word! This is exquisite painting expressive and reaching deeply into the soul...and the title says it all...stunningly beautiful artwork! bravo! f/v

Many thanks for your kind appreciation, Jolanta!
