Can Roots Fly? – Outsider Art

I painted roots flying through the clouds in a circle.  They’re painted behind a few of my favorite root friends whom I’d dug out of my garden.

You may say roots can’t fly and they shouldn’t be referred as ‘whom’ because they aren’t persons. But…I now know slime molds live as single individuals until they run out of food.  Then they move together, assign various tasks to certain ones, smell the air and move toward food, even change directions.  Trees talk to each other by sending chemical messages to nematodes who deliver the message to other trees. I communicate because of chemical messages too.

As for flying- I’m hoping to see groups of trees fly through the atmosphere of other planets. There is no right nor wrong in interpretating pictures so I’d love to hear from you. Are trees important to you or do the roots become a symbol of learning, your family, tulips, or history of transportation down through the ages?
