JAN DeLIPSEY THE OLDEST TREE
10” x 20” — Oil $2,275
The tree in this painting lives in Grafton, Utah, just south of Zion National Park. I adore this tree and have stood under it many times painting. On my most recent visit though, I just wanted to celebrate this magnificent Cottonwood which is close to 300 years old. Indigenous people tell a story of a little star who hid in a Cottonwood tree so as to hear the sounds and songs of humans. I think about this story when I paint close to a Cottonwood and I always sing a bit so as not to disappoint the little star.
