Illustration Friday ~ Homage

An homage to the hollow tree
The hollow tree is a massive red cedar located in Stanley Park, Vancouver and just this last week it was announced that the tree has had the biscuit and it will have to come down in May. This giant tree has been a part of the Vancouver park for 1,000 years; however, due to the severe storms that hit our area in 2006 and the ripe old age of this beauty, the tree poses a safety threat and now we must say farewell.

It's a pity that they have to cut down the tree. You've done a beautiful job of preserving its memory. Love it.
