Giants of the Earth: California Sequoias Presented by Lee-Jean Lin

This month Lee-Jean Lin introduced us to John Muir, a very important conservationist born in April 1838, who is considered the 'father' of our National Parks.  During a new industrial age John Muir was an outspoken champion for the natural world.

During this workshop Lee-Jean explained point-of-view and perspective which can be clearly seen to have an important role in the composition of the finished artwork.  The Sequoias were then brought to life with watercolor and acrylic paint.

Brunch was creatively presented among a forest of Sequoias by Madison, St James and RUHS.

The vendor was Karen Miller Johnson who displayed her nature inspired artwork.
