The inspiration for this painting came from my client, her new home and surrounding area in S.E. Calgary and the beautiful Elm tree that the locals have named Lucy. My client sent me a fabulous photo to work with and knowing that I love painting trees and have a Celtic Tree series, I was honoured that my client commissioned me to create this beautiful Elm Tree. The reference to the heart is if you look closely in the trunk of the tree she has a burrow in her shaped like a heart. I chose to put in Common Ravens as they are a sign of knowledge and intelligence just like my client.
