    Item Description:

    Trees
    Some of the trees of my childhood were wild and of the west coast.  Some belonged to an old apple orchard and others still were planted for their ornamental splendour in the family flower garden.  They were all beautiful.
     
    Humanity grew up in the shadows of forests and beheld them as a place of life and knowledge.  Trees were cloaked in mystery and thought to be protected by spirits. The dead might be buried in them, or infants cradled in their branches.  In countless ways we have structured our development by harnessing the energies of these fantastic forms of life.
     
                                                      
      These paintings are done in gratitude to the living forest.
     
                                   
    Thank you to the Dragonfly Arts and Crafts Centre for showcasing these works.
     
                                                                                                  
    Lynda Hyndman grew up on Canada’s west coast.  She studied art at Vancouver City College (Langara) and Vancouver Island University.  She has worked as a commercial artist, art instructor and painter for many years in the Nanaimo area.
