Yosemite Rivulet

Since April 2020 I have posted on Facebook a painting each day as a brief diversion from the lockdowns and other bad news this year. Neglecting my weblog, I’ll post in the coming days some of my better posts.

“Yosemite Rivulet”, 22×28, acrylic on board

August30,2020 

Continuing posting paintings of redwoods from the “Studio Jela”… This is a really old piece I did probably in the early 90’s from my ‘acrylic era’. This scene could be about anywhere in California where redwoods grow, but was actually close to the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Valley. Just after a rainstorm, small gullies fill with muddy water for a brief time and once running for awhile turn into clear refreshing streams.
