"General Sherman", Sequoia National Forest, California


"General Sherman", largest tree in the universe! 30x15 inches, oil on canvas, sold. We are staying at Montecito Sequoia Lodge with a big group of Santa Barbarians. This magnificent subject is found just down The General's Highway... an aptly named road considering this tree towers over it. This was painted Easter Sunday in mid afternoon. The cool rarified air of the Sequoia's and plenty of sunshine made for an earthly paradise. I love showing people what I do and answering questions about my art and such. But 5000 of them was just a tad overwhelming to tell the truth. At first I have the vibe that I didn't want to be disturbed. That seemed to incite aggressive vibes back After hours of interactions and a beer I succumbed to their needs and started engaging everyone who needed to talk to me. I had to talk more but everyone, including myself where better for it.
