The Painted Trees

Artist Curtis Killorn has a unique way of making dead trees come to life. Well, artistically, anyways. He said:

"I paint dead trees in bright colors in the mountains of Colorado as public art. ... The trees that I paint are long dead and weathered by hundreds of years. What I do is bring "life" back to the tree in a completely new way. This tree which was once dead is now vibrantly alive to be noticed by all, no longer blending in with all the other dead trees."

How is this beautiful? It's just tacky rainbow colored. Never mind ruining the scenery for people, the animals would all probably go "wtf" at this.

"Plenty of dead trees" serve a purpose. Why do we have the egos that we're somehow "improving" nature by cluttering it up with garbage like this?

Get a grip people, both the artist and you are exaggerating on "dead for hundreds of years", in which case it wouldn't be standing at the very least. This is really beautiful. If you think dead trees are beautiful on their own, there are plenty for you to see.
