A small group of very old oak trees stands together next to a hiking trail, near the shore of a lovely lake. You don’t see the trees, though, until you turn the corner from a wide fire road onto the smaller trail that will take you around the lake.
On this particular morning walk, I was greeted by a delightful surprise. Sunlight illumined the trees and surrounding vegetation in a way that I’ve never seen before or since. My mind – my awareness – was illumined as well, lifted from the ordinary to the extraordinary. This moment occurred years ago, yet I have never forgotten it. It had to be painted.
Though the original is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore looks very much like an oil painting, with deep and brilliant color. You have your choice of sizes.
