Painting: Eucalyptus and Oaks

A new painting, just uploaded, but not yet up on my Etsy page:


Acrylics on wood panel (small).

There are a number of old oak trees on my property, and a stand of eucalyptus. The eucalyptus were planted in stands all around central, coastal California during the early 20th century, when Californians thought that they could make some profit from planting them. Alas, it was not so; the imported species just grow taller every year, and no other plants seem to survive well near them — except the oaks.

I’m in the process of finishing, labeling, and re-photographing my paintings for a better presentation on my venues, Etsy and BlueCanvas.
