New: “Redwood”

Can’t remember where this scene was.  I think in Vermont. I came across it years ago, somewhere, and did a pastel sketch with the intent of starting a canvas. Years went by. I came across the pastel recently and, seeing it with fresh eyes, felt it was worthy of committing to paint. While not much larger than the pastel itself, the finished piece captures the essence of the sketch, which is almost always the intention, though not always the outcome. The red trees in the sketch seemed they could use some amplification,which led to the piece’s name. “Redwood” 16 x 20
