Welcome tree people and guests to the FOREST Gallery at the TREE Project. In this "Grove" you will find the lastest members of  the Forest and some of my early favorites. Feel free to stroll at your own pace through this ever growing forest of magical TREES. You may click on any tree to see a full page version. Feel free to stay as long as you like, stop by daily for the lastest TREE to the forest and remember to leave it as you found it.

peace and TREE ON, RIII

just like a leaf on a branch in a TREE, this is one of many, each unique in their own way, ones of whimsy and ones from reality, ones drawn from pictures that friends posted to my wall, and more than one from my yards. Thanks Forest Friends for making this journey something more and worth sharing. And all those who have parts of the Forest in their homes((hugs)). Thanks to my wife, KC, for watching and loving the TREES and to Alissa Rose, for a thought. TREE ON!!!

in the bottom of the drawer, miss matched, darned, stretched out, many shoes it has worn. That is about a sock and this is a TREE and this is a drawing of missed matched thoughts about a place that is a forest, a dream on paper that came to life because the whimsy and fancy of a child "you should draw a TREE everyday, grandpa". Thank you my dear sweet, Alissa Rose. TREE ON!!!
