TGIF Challenge - Wonderful Trees

I do a great deal of thinking about trees it seems including the parts of them above ground and the parts below that can't be seen. Last weekend, I had the pleasure of joining a sweet friend of mine, Laura Haviland (be sure to have a peek at what she created on our weekend!) to take a course in encaustic collage with Andrea Bird. Andrea uses many trees in her artwork that she has photographs herself using the black and white setting on her digital camera. They give a haunting look to many of her pieces that is so evocative and engaging. I think that the tree and the background of this card have a similar feel to them. This is my entry for the TGIF challenge this week.
