Birch Tree Paintings

The birch tree derives its name from the Germanic root word ‘birka’, meaning to shine. The birch tree has been instrumental in helping peoples of the northern climate survive due to a multitude of uses. For centuries, people have built with it, clothed themselves and made a sweet drink from it’s wood. The list of its versatile uses are long, so it is not difficult to understand the birch’s spiritual importance in history. Yes, the birch tree is a popular subject for artists, but I can never tire of this shining lady of the forest. – Kathleen Thorsen
