Trip to the Redwood forest

Short story based on my visit to the Redwood National and State Parks. I still feel as though I didn’t really capture the mood that magic that’s in the forest but still close. It’s really difficult to capture something that feels authentic, rather than something artificial.

I actually reached a thousand followers on Tumbler! That’s pretty awesome and thanks for viewing! I figured I should post something for the occasion.

Earlier this year, I went to Ireland for the first time and it was a game changer for me. These paintings are based on colors and moods I was feeling, not necessarily a specific location. It was an attempt to capture how I felt at a particular moment and the color and light I observed. I decided not to do any drawings or paintings when I was there, even though I packed everything I would need. I simply wanted to observe the environment. I felt as though I was seeing a classic European painting in front of me and maybe understood their painting decisions a little more.. the next time I return, I’ll actually draw and paint something! ….maybe.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for checking out my paintings and following!
