Original Oil on Canvas — Placerita Canyon, California
Title "Dwelling Amongst the Oaks"
“Dwelling amongst the oaks” original oil painting on canvas size is 20″ x 16″ (Unframed).
The scene is located in Placerita Canyon, Santa Clarita CA. in the dry creek bed just off the path next to the nature center there. It was painted in January 2006 on a cold winter day, hence the cottonwood trees have no leaves, but the surrounding Oak trees keep their leaves all year. I was very intrigued with the dramatic cool blue & purple shadows of the gnarled roots on these magnificent trees. they looked to me as if they could get up and walk away!
