Backpacking in the high Sierras last September brought me this painting inspired by a pair of cedar trees, two of many living in the Iva Belle Hot Springs area. Painted here in thick generous brushstrokes, I strove to create not only an impressionistic doorway, but a metaphorical one as well. As John Muir said, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.”  This painting is done on a 1.5″-deep wrapped canvas and arrives ready to hang.
