A Redwood Stump

A Redwood Stump Painting

Every time I visit the woods near my home in Northern California, I am inspired to paint a little something… Our last visit to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve was no exception. There were many incredible gnarled redwood tree stumps, ages old and covered with history and moss – so lovely that maybe a whole “Stump Series” of watercolors will follow.

A Young Trunk In Marin

Tree Art

Every so often we escape to the woods out near Marin, California, which we are lucky enough to live relatively close to. There are awesome huge Redwoods everywhere and mossy growth in the winter and spring. It’s very relaxing to just sit and do small studies and watercolors of nature’s little beauties. The velvet moss on the side of this young seedling caught my eye.

“Oh redwood tree
Please let us under
When we were young we used to go
Under the redwood tree.
And it smells like rain
Maybe even thunder
Won’t you keep us from all harm
Wonderful redwood tree.”

 – Lyrics by Van Morrison –
