What are the tallest trees on earth? What can grow to heights of over 350 feet with amazing redish brown bark that thickens as it ages? And where can you see them?
Tallest Tree: 316 feet
Widest Tree: 34 feet
Redwood Mountain Grove
The length of 2 Toyota Priuses
|As tall as a 31-story building|
Being dwarfed by Earth’s most massive tree, the giant sequoia, fills you with wonder. It’s hard to believe that a living thing can be so enormous and old. Also known as Sierra redwoods, the largest of these trees that live in California’s rugged Sierra Nevada mountain range, could hold a stadium full of people~ Save the Redwoods.org
As I was painting this, I kept coming back to the thought that this beautiful redwood tree standing alone in the bright sky with its branches splayed out elegantly all around it, haloed by light, reminded me of a figure of royalty: A tall, proud queen decked out in brilliant robes and jewels. I just had to name this tree “Her Majesty.”
I started on it today. The canvas is 24" x 48".I changed the tree quite a bit today. I wanted a looser, Impressionist feel to it, and I added blue and purple tones to give a more shadowed look. I also adjusted the width of the tree in places. I may add just a few more changes, but I like it much better now.

I would like to share my thoughts about her because:
This artist is special becuase the theme of her work is:
I identified with her theme because:
What I noticed about her work was:
describe what you see both subject and compostion using the elements of art and principles of design: include mass,organic forms, use of positive and negative space and use of light. Pay attention to how the light dances on the branches or the stars shine through? How does the artist use line to move your eyes through the picture?
What is her style? Impressionistic, abstract, realistic?
If I could spend a day with her I'd like to know:
