Celebrating Earth Day

As you might guess from all the trees I draw, I am a nature lover.  I can find enough inspiration from a quiet walk in the woods for a month of drawings.  Soaking up the beauty of the forest feeds my soul.


I love that Earth Day is a world wide movement,  Nature is an art form unto itself that is well worth protecting and valuing.  Wouldn’t it be great if Earth Day could become a true International holiday where every country united to honor and protect our precious environment?


I invite you to celebrate Earth Day by drawing a tree. Take some time to really look at the lines, the colors and the shadows.   Whether it’s a tiny sapling or a mighty sequoia, each tree expresses unique qualities that are powerful and positive.   Once we see that in one thing, we can see it others.   “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”  John Muir is my hero.  He painted beautiful pictures with his words and inspired the world to cherish the natural wonders all around us.


  1. Hi Paula,

    Great trees! And I couldn’t agree more. I’d hate to live where there are no trees. I need them! Luckily I come from redwood country and now up here. And I AM going to practice drawing them more! Thanks for the inspiration. Robyn T
