Watercolor of Northern Catalpa tree in Portland Oregon


Painting to Save the Trees in Portland, Oregon

Northern Catalpa Tree near the end of N. Richmond Ave in the St. John’s District of Portland, Oregon (Watercolor & Ink / 8in x 10in / 2018)

    Story: This beautiful, tall tree is on a vacant, overgrown piece of land that is for sale. It has huge leaves and beautiful blossoms in the early springtime. It has two younger siblings nearby. The tree adds grace and charm to an area that has long been neglected and is “home” to several people of meager means.

    Story: These tall, old trees are near the airport; very grand. I will hate to see them go – as I noted before, their homeland is for sale.

    Story: Scappoose would be mostly wetlands if it was not for the dike along Multnoma Channel. Durning the rainy season (Oct-July) many fields turn into ponds; a boon to migrating waterbirds.
