tree growth & Ayn Rand


I finished these trees in the last few days. This is the first mustard yellow tree ever, but I quite like it. These burnt orange cacti sell pretty well, for some reason or other. Lots of times I feel like I'm just remaking designs over and over. But, it seems a little silly to work on new things when I don't have my original items in stock, so maybe in a few days I can start on something new.

I am totally obsessed with Ayn Rand, and here is a quote by her that I think most creative folks, or at least I, can relate to:

"There will be days when you'll look at your hands and you'll want to take something and smash every bone in them, because they'll be taunting you with what they could do, if you found a chance for them to do it, and you can't find that chance, and you can't bear your living body because it has failed those hands somewhere."

Really great (warm) colors - I don't normally gravitate towards them but it's really well-suited to the concept.

Oh & my father has been trying me to read Ayn Rand for YEARS, I stopped halfway through "Atlas Shrugged" but maybe it's time to pick it up again :]
