Oil on Canvas
16” x 20”

This image is from a family vacation many years ago to California. After driving up the coast from Los Angeles we took the kids to the Redwood forest. I imagine many people have a photo very similar to this if they visited the Redwoods. This is my son, about 7 and my daughter, around 12, balancing on a giant limb. What began as a violet under layer became the palette as the painting progressed. I wanted to feel the mystery and potential danger, which I think the dark unexpected color tones help provide.
