The Witch Tree, Oil Painting on Canvas, Merel van Eck 2021.

That’s an odd looking tree! ‘That’s because it’s not really a tree… It’s called The Witch Tree and some say it has magical powers. It works like a mirror and shows you what’s in your mind, helps you to find your path when you’re lost. It doesn’t need to be visually, it can also be sounds or lost memories from the past to help you find your way. If you’re lucky, it will even show you a future path you can take. If that happens, it will suddenly appear in front of you and it can disappear in an eye blink if you’re not fast enough making a choice. The flowers are lost spirits that have found their rest at this magical place. The orbs are there to protect you’. Wait, to protect me? ‘Well, you never know what will, or can happen…’
