“Fullerton Arboretum”; Exhibition Finalist Winner in Art Competition.
$144.00 – $668.00
The Fullerton Arboretum is a large 26 acre botanical garden located on the outer edge of the California State College Campus, in the city of Fullerton, California. It has such a wide variety of plant species from all over the world, that there’s something new and different everywhere you look. The campus has a treasure trove for exploration, higher learning (including R & D), and the hope for superior sustainability of plants and trees in the future. Sustainable forests and sustainable food sources are issues in which we should all be participants. Beyond being one of the best arboretums anywhere and the great museum they have and friendly staff, the Arboretum gives classes and educational tours to schools and to the public on everything from gardening to medicinal uses of plants, and more. It opens its doors many times a year for special city and campus fundraising events, including those to help fund the ongoing care and maintenance the Arboretum requires with over 4000 different species of plants and trees. Due to so many beautiful and uniquely scenic spots within the gardens and it’s meandering trails, rumor has it that it’s a wonderful and memorable place to propose, and to have a wedding. It’s a little slice of paradise in the middle of a bustling world, and well worth the visit and the ensuing enlightenment it gives. A portion of every sale of this painting will be donated back to the Fullerton Arboretum to help support their ongoing care and maintenance of this rare, special, and needed facility.
Professional photographer David Ricks took a gorgeous photograph of the Fullerton Arboretum, causing his photography talents to shine. He is a Cal State Fullerton alumni after all. It was his photograph that inspired me to want to paint it, so it is with his permission and that of the Fullerton Arboretum that this painting exists at all. (Credit:David Ricks)
I submitted this painting into Fusion Art’s 5th Annual Landscape Painting Competition with the hopes of bringing the Fullerton Arboretum to the forefront of people’s minds. I was so pleased to find out that this painting was included as a finalist. It will be on exhibition and available to view through Fusion Art’s online Art Magazine for the month of January 2020, and of course on my website a little longer. David Ricks and the Fullerton Arboretum of course will have gratis copies.
