Fern Taylor has many original paintings throughout our hotel. You can find selections from her Tree series in many guest rooms. Every one of these works features the subject matter of a closely-cropped tree, but each painting is very unique. Through this series, Taylor is able to explore light, shadow, and color; by retaining the subject throughout, the viewer is able to concentrate on the subtle differences between each tree. We also have a large Taylor original, Storm, acrylic on canvas, 59 x 63″, located on our 2nd floor!
Fun Fact: Before trees existed on Earth, there were fungi types that could grow up to 3 feet wide and 26 feet tall! Prototaxites existed about 420 million to 370 million years ago.
