Spring Splendor

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 14″h x 22.75″w, 2003.

I always enjoyed spring in Siskiyou County, California. Deep green forests fringed the lush, green pastures that abounded everywhere in the valleys and rolling hills. This painting is a good example of the spring beauty of the County. The location is on the Burton Ranch in the Yreka Creek Valley. It can be seen from Hwy 3 just southwest of Yreka. This buckskin and bay look into this scenic pasture. I deliberately painted them looking to the landscape rather than away from it. By doing this, the viewer participates with the horses by looking into the scene. This was such a beautiful, bucolic setting.
