Custom Redwood oil
This is a custom redwood painting selected from one of my photos. There is something very special about Redwood trees, a soft quietness of nature. I grew up around redwoods and worked for a time in their presence, one can only feel honored to have had the opportunity.
18×24 oil on canvas.
Okay…backing off of politics for a much more pleasant part of existence…art.
I painted this redwood painting several years ago, it was painted from a photograph taken during the fall. Fall and spring provide those long casting shadows which provide a pleasant beautiful setting for the eyes. This is oil on canvas, 18×24.
This is my second or third oil of Coast Redwoods, for a time I worked in the redwoods so I felt a bonding with them. I call this “summer redwoods” to separate from my fall painting. Fall is a much better time to take photos of redwoods because of the longer shadows, even so I am happy with the summer painting. This is oil on canvas, 24×30.
Redwood forest flora
I was told the flower in the middle was called trillium, hope it is correct. Several years back, I had the opportunity to visit a redwood forest, I was intrigued by the ground flora and moss, so I photographed it and painted it. Painting moss was a challenge, but I feel I did justice to the moss. I may do this one again for the challenge of it. This painting was oil, on canvas, 16×20. I sold it awhile back. Sorry for the small example, I need to dig around for slightly larger one.
By popular request, I dug around and figured out how to provide a larger example of “Trullum”, enjoy.
