The next time I go to Russellville, I will make time to stop by. The tree also happens to be in the yard of the church that we visited.
I painted this picture basically from my imagination. I wanted a picture with lots of colors. Again, I added leaves for my husband. But not too many so that the detail of the trees still shows through. I have not drawn or painted in a while now. I need to get back to it. The pictures that I have painted on my iPad, print out beautifully. I have framed a few of them.
It is still alive. Even after having the top taken out by a tornado from hurricane Frederick almost 30 years ago. It has also been hit by lightening twice. It would probably take 3 men to reach all the way around its base.
I took the picture from the bottom looking up. It looks like a person with their arms stretched out.
