She says the vibrant blue coloring of the trees caught her attention immediately. 'I first wondered who would paint the trees blue, and I was wondering it the paint would harm the trees,' she says. She learned that "The Blue Trees" are a part of an art installation by Australian artist, Konstantin Dimopoulos, and the purpose of the piece is to bring awareness to global deforestation. The trees are covered with a natural water-base pigment, according to the artist's website.
