Sigillaria in the sunset

This is my oil on canvas painting of a sigillaria tree in the light of the carboniferous sunset, by the time when the sun was shining next to it's companion, a white dwarf. By that time the Earth was smaller, with a weaker gravitational field and that permitted the growth of the huge sigillaria and lepidodendron trees with their green elastic stems. Maybe today a sigillaria tree would break and fall under it's own weight
