Pine trees on the right of the trail are linked by long afternoon shadows to oaks on the left. This perfect Indian Summer day in Northern California was inspired by life along Big Springs Trail in Tilden Park, which, along with other parks, covers the entire eastern rim of the San Francisco Bay Area. This painting, done using lots of paint and thick emotive brushstrokes, captures the wildness of this vast protected space, home to cougars, fox, deer, golden eagles and more.

This original arrives on a 1.5″ wrapped canvas with hand-painted edge and is ready to hang.
