Cry Not For Me My Willow Tree: Weeping Willow I
Weeping Willow I, West Laurel Maryland.
Oil on canvas 16x20
From the Weeping Willow Series. Weeping Willow I inspired by Claude Monet the reknowned master of impressionism.
The Willow Tree can be inconsistent in height. The tine Dwarf Willow, reaching a diminished height of only 2 inches, grows almost as a grass in flood plains, whereas the Weeping Willow can grow up to 65 feet in height and spreads out to at least 40 feet in width. Willows are fast-growing, and grow best when in full sun with access to water, gaining more than 10 feet a year.
