Hi Chris,

Thank you. The trees were the easiest part, down to a nice little java app
called Arbaro. You can get it here:


I have been using it for years.

Hi Thomas, and thank you also.

I have been busy writing, and it tends to overshadow everything else. And yes,
Beksinski is a true master. Probably one of the most disquieting artists out

not enjoy it. Took up photography, then painting, then went digital.)
