Original California Fall Landscape and Art Ideas

I was in San Juan Capistrano looking just enjoying a meal with friends and found this tree with personality. Some trees send out good vibes. It was almost saying “look at me, look at me . . . ” I stood back, it reminded me of one of Charles Burchfield’s trees . . . Mr. Burchfield’s work is amazing it has a “haunting” quality . . .

Is my tree haunted? I don’t think so but it had the ability to stand out. I love trees with "pizazz" and the tree had "it" in the little parking lot behind the Italian Restaurant.

Do icons of art and art history stay in our memory to become artworks at a later date? Do certain trees, flowers, and people have attributes that compel us to put them on paper or canvas? I think they do but I’ll keep thinking about these questions as I continue with my work...

See this work and others in my Etsy Shop....
