I love the emphasis that there is just as much life in the death of a creature as there is in life... that it can be even more vibrant because it's not just one thing anymore; it becomes many things.

Personally, I've got a thing for dead trees. They're one of the most under-rated and colossally important components of a healthy forest.

.....also; I'm wondering if this ties into Ink in some way. The visual similarities... hmmmmmm :meow:

This painting means something to me now. This is the last thing I saw on DeviantArt when my sister and her friend came in our house crying. They found our dog who was missing for 3 days dead in a cornfield behind out house. I just find it so strange that this is what I would be looking at before finding out what had just happened. I'm never going to forget this painting.
