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.
Picket Fence was a lot of fun doing, …of course I used a pallet knife for the pickets. This was from one of my photos taken during my travels, a simple composition. One person told me I should have placed a gate in the painting? I told them the gate is to the right out of the picture.
