Rooted Like a Tree

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size: 29″h x 38.5″w, Watercolor, 1988.

I saw this old oak tree along the American River Parkway in Sacramento, Calif. This was a grand old tree with a wonderful upward, and outward shape reaching in a radius like direction for sunlight. I painted the Red-tailed Hawk in the distance to incorporate some wildlife.

Red-Tailed Hawk

Medium: Watercolor, Image Size:16″h X 12″w, 2008.

While out hiking one day I saw a hawk flying over the meadow in Rocky Point, Oregon. After scouting the meadow, it then perched upon one of the many conifer trees that line the meadows’ edge. It seemed a good subject to paint.
