On My Easel - Ode to trees

This is what I am working on right now.  A "happy accident" painting.  It's acrylic with drops of Sepia ink.  It started off as small dots that resembled the speckled effect in the under feathers of a birds tummy.  It was to be a bird themed painting, or so I thought but... it had its own ideas.  I work in a small studio (very small) and at the end of the evenings painting session I had to stand the canvas  up.   I thought this would be fine, it was dry, right?  When I woke up the ink had slowly run down the canvas and viola happy accident, they were trees.  With the theme changed I decided to add pages from an old discarded book which became the ground which the big Mama tree grows in.
