Regeneration - Regeneration of ancient hemlock by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  Regeneration  (2004)
Subject: Regeneration of ancient hemlock
Dimensions (inches): 30 x 24
Medium: acrylic on masonite
Description: Early one summer in the mid 1990's we spent a day at a camp near Germania, PA. On a hike near there, we found this huge hemlock on the edge of a field that looked as if it were comprised of two or more trees grown together. Hemlocks are the slowest growing of all the fir trees so we estimated the age of this one to be around 150 years old. What fascinated me was that it appeared to have grown almost out of a burned out stump of a previous hemlock, which could have dated back at least another 100 years, possibly placing it's beginnings around the time of the American Revolution. Hemlock pinecones are very small and tight but the heat of a forest fire will often cause them to open and reseed themselves. There were plenty of deer in the area and the image of this tree and the theme of regeneration haunted me until I did this painting in 2004.
