True Tree

I decided to go for a linguistic theme with this one. It all started with a little square watercolour I painted to test colours for my last project. I then dug up my American Heritage dictionary of Indo-European roots, and found that the root for the word Tree is "deru", meaning "To be firm, solid, steadfast". It is also the root of Trough, Tray, and also True, Trust and Truce, Endure and Rhododendron, and Druid. I love my Indo-European roots!!
