Growing up near Quaking Aspen in the mountain country, I have always loved them. They are a unique and interesting tree.
We now know that they are often inter-connected with large numbers of their neighboring trees in very old organisms.
In spring and summer the distinctive leaves are beautiful
In winter the contrasts between their structure, the bark and branching sites are also interesting
This painting is all about design
