Inspired by trees

I have always loved trees. Maybe I was originally inspired by my name, Silvia, which means "of the forest" I used to love traipsing through the woods when I was a child, imagining I was some sort of forest creature. I loved the way the sunlight came through the trees in winking rays.

I'm still inspired to play with trees. Here a little kiwi toy enjoys a tree which grows "clouds"

Trees inspire my art. "Tree Harp" above (see the winking sunrays?) and "Pixie Tree" below.
My art blog has several works inspired by trees: Trees

I used to enjoy playing Sims, and forests and trees featured in many of my Sims lives. I have put together several photos of Sims and their trees HERE

One of my stories involves an oak-tree spirit named Taranis. You can read this story at either of these sites:
"Taranis" on facebook
"
Taranis" on the Sims 2 website

The home of my character, Salix, in Ultima Online, which I played many years ago. Where others made themselves homes with proper walls and roofs, I made Salix a forest of trees to live in.

I think I will always be that little girl who imagines herself a creature of the forest!
