Socotra is a set of Islands in the Indian Ocean. It contains some of the most unique plants known to man. I love exotic vegetation . I hope to go there one day and take some incredible pictures.
One of the most striking of Socotra’s plants is the dragon’s blood tree (Dracaena cinnabari), which is a strange-looking, umbrella-shaped tree. Its red sap was the dragon’s blood of the ancients, sought after as a medicine and a dye. Today the sap is used as paint and varnish. This tree is my favorite.
I have a fascination with trees. I’ve been drawing trees ever since I can remember, I love bonsai trees, I’m interested in the branch work and root work…
I will be posting pictures of the different trees i have painted in the last 15 years, as well as interesting renditions of my favorite Trees.
Maybe you can help me figure out what the underlying meaning is.
This one was originally a drawing, I scanned it and put some filters on it and I really like the texture it created. It’s actually one of my favorites. That picture was taken by one of my roommates in college I was about 19 years old.
