A lone old tree

Emily Carr, born in 1871, captured the grandeur of British Columbia in her paintings.

I had never heard of this wonderful artist until my friend Eva sent me the book Emily Carr Collected for my birthday. How wonderful to have good friends who introduce you to new artists and new ideas and new adventures!

Carr painted trees and wrote about them in her journals. In 1933, she described herself as “a lone old tree,” writes Ian Thom in the introduction to Emily Carr Collected.

She often projected her feelings onto trees. “Trees are much more sensible than people, steadier and more enduring,” Carr once said.
