This series of paintings is a celebration of the life and beauty of the Tsuga canadensis, the eastern hemlock, and of the rare Tsuga caroliniana, the Carolina Hemlock, which occurs only in the mountains of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. This exhibition is meant to connect with viewers spiritually and emotionally, enhancing awareness and deepening the bond with these irreplaceable members of our living community.
