Here she is, the Lady of the forest; you can only usually see her on the eve of a new moon each month. ;)

:clap: Yay! Strange sinous organicy stuff. Somehow this piece has the intricate quality of a paper doilly albiet a somewhat spooky one. I'm not too sure about the leafy shoulderpads ( rather 80's yuppie chick methinks! ) but I like the way there's leaves falling from what seem to be corresponding black holes in their canopy. Also the skeletal hand branches & the long tattered root skirt are Pretty Damn Cool. But best of all is the branches/leaf canopy coming from Ms.Tree's
head - like a hairdo on a stalk - it'll be all the rage next Season dahling!

But there's one thing that troubles me.....where is Flea :-?
Is he ill? Should I send flowers? Grapes? Donuts?

Hello there! Haven't spoken to you in ages! First off - Flea's on a little holiday at the moment; he didn't say when he'll return, though I'm sure it'll be fairly soon. (He's possibly Christmas shopping ;)) Haha, yes she is rather 80's; I agree she should lose the shoulder pads! Yep, I've already seen some youngsters sporting leaf canopy hairdos. ;P Thanks very much for the comment, and I hope you're keeping well!

Cripes! :faint: It's Astrid!
I was coming to the conclusion that you weren't speaking to me anymore. :cries:
If Flea's anything like me he'll need a holiday if he's been Christmas Shopping. We hates it my precious, yes we does. Not that I've done any yet. Although I still like the whole Christmas thang generaly, an elusive echo of enchantment. :roll: I'm such a child.
To be honest I'm not too well. Although hearing from you has lifted my spirits a little! In fact I might even ring down for a dish of weak broth to be brought to the bedchamber. ;)

Aaaawww I'm sorry! It's just I only really get the chance to go online at weekends now, cos work keeps me so busy! Gah, don't blame you with the whole Christmas shopping thing; Oxford Street's a nightmare at this time of the year. :o Plus, I end up shopping for pressies for other people, then I suddenly become all selfish and just want to buy stuff for myself. ;) You're not well? Right, I'll give Flea a call and tell him to cancel his shopping/holiday to Barbados and visit you. :D Hope you feel better!

Flea did indeed pay me a visit - and what a charming little fellow he is! He arrived just in time for tiffin, and so we passed a pleasant hour sipping Earl Grey Tea, eating Hot Buttered Scones, & spitting on the tablecloth. ;)

Ah excellent! I shall have to thank young Flea and give him that cash I promised him. ;) Don't feed him up too much, he'll get spoiled rotten and then expect the same treatment from yours truely!

Yes. ;P But I was actually inspired by an artist my mum loves (can't remember his name!). We have posters of his art on our walls in the house, and he does these amazing. intricate silhouette pieces with crazy colourful backgrounds - maybe Frank Miller saw his work a long time ago too. ;) Cheers Leon!

It's cool how the white section is pretty much one piece - apart from the drops. Reminds me of those intricate paper or fabric cut-outs.

Thanks! I'd so love to be able to do those fabric/stencil cut outs; I've tried, but they require far more patience than I currently have! ;)

I know! My parents have this massive fabric cutout framed in their house - it is one piece of material with 100 chinese characters cut into it. It's amazing.
