If there is an interest in its continuation, please voice it, and the club may be able to present the month's topic in a little more detail here, and allow for more work time at actual meetings. We'll see how our members wish to move forward, post COVID, with all the changes that brought.
For now, I look forward to seeing people and their trees (both having survived!) at the July meeting. As a reminder, Cornell is requiring all visitors, like us, to wear masks regardless of vaccine status, so please come prepared.
Till then, tend on, my fellow artists; tend on!
This is Lydia Shea, signing off.
P.S.: You might find this interesting; I did! I took these photos of a birch tree up in the Adirondacks last October. As you can see, it suffered some sort of wound... perhaps lightning, perhaps something else; either way, a big wound. I found it super interesting how this tree was going about healing, though. It's sending out roots from the top edge, but it looks like some eventually made contact with the bottom edge, and healed back in! Then they thickened, put on bark, and look like twigs laid across the gap. Really interesting! I'd never seen something like this before... thought I'd share :)
