Wild Camus (and Bertha's Tree),acrylic, 6x8

This little tree is surrounded by a wild flower meadow. Under the tree is a plaque marking the grave of Bertha aged 5years and other smallpox victims of the Steamship Prince Alfred, en-route from SanFransisco in 1874.
It is a lovely spot. Currently the meadow is in bloom with camus, bluebells, and white daffodils. These will be replaced continually with other wild flowers as the season progresses. The sun is shining today and the birds are singing with joy.
