Tree tag #289
Began working on “Emily II”. This is the second painting in my new Emily’s Trees collection. I just sent an email to the City of Victoria asking if they have any information on tree tag #289, such as what kind of tree it is, how old it is, when it was planted and what is its expected life span. I look forward to hearing back from the City and will post when I hear word. I am also in need of the tree’s GPS coordinates. She’s located in behind the Caretaker’s house and can view it from walking Fairfield Road; however, now that the weather has changed, I will head into the cemetery and find its exact coordinates and post above.
Like Emily I, Emily II is a small canvas and makes it challenging to paint. As you can see in the photos, the foliage is phthalo blue deep and greenish gray. An unlikely combination, yet fit perfectly together. I think the tree may be a blue spruce and it looks very old, perhaps older than Emily I.
