Little but Mighty

Feb 7, 2012 Painting A Day Project
Little but Mighty

Today’s painting was inspired by how hardy some of the evergreens are out west. I’m amazed at how they “scratch by” and literally grow up out of the rocks. They eventually break boulders by growing in a crack, spreading out their roots and allowing water (and ice) to get in the crack and expand. I guess you could say, they’re taking the mountain, boulder by boulder.

“I never saw a discontented tree. They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.”
~John Muir
