Nation's Christmas Tree

24x30 acrylic on canvas, SOLD
I LOVE living near Giant Sequoias. I feel protected by these massive trees, as if they stand guard over California's central valley. Just knowing they are only an hour away somehow makes me happier.

COINED our nation's Christmas Tree by Calvin Coolidge in 1926, and the only living thing to be declared a National Shrine, the General Grant Tree stands in Kings Canyon National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada. Reaching 270 feet tall, and 107 feet around the base, it is one of our national park's biggest attractions. It is the 2nd largest Sequoia in the world, and is about 3000 years old.

EVERY YEAR, on the 2nd Sunday in December, there is a holiday wreath ceremony, with a non-denominational message, to honor the men and women who have died in service to our country.

WINTER, for many, is a time to reflect, enjoy loved ones, and get close to nature. I thought this tree, and the critters that live below it, would be the perfect December painting for my yearly Three Rivers Calendar. Just finished in the nick of time.
