Tree of life

Tree of life

I grew up in a garden with a large Chestnut tree and it is to me a special that this tree saw me, my mother and now a new generation grow up while growing taller and taller. It is a comforting idea to be part of this larger scheme of things and that there are many creatures in our world that exist longer than 3 -5 generations of humans. I captured my feeling of wonder in this illustration.
