Forest Fascination



The winding roads that lead from the 101 to the coast are shrouded with redwood trees, all reaching high into the sky and creating a cathedral like quality. I have probably taken 1,000 photos over the years of the drive along highway 128 especially, but haven't painted this subject more than 10 times. It is hard to harness all the components without making things too hectic and complicated. I hope that by choosing just one huge tree and one young tree with florescent green foliage that you can grasp the majesty, even a teensy tinsy bit.
