Oak in the Meadow – Santa Monica Mountains – Karen Winters Daily Painting

June 5th, 2008

Oak in the Meadow 12 x 16 inch oil on canvas

Late afternoon light streams across a meadow dotted with oak trees. The glow reminded me of a long ago time in a peaceful place.
In real life, the place is the Santa Monica Mountains – a meadow not far from Malibu Creek State Park. The distant mountain range takes on a violet cast as the sun descends. Soon, even the wildflowers will be covered with deep shadows. Don’t you just want to sit under that tree and listen to the calls of the red-winged blackbirds?

  1. Yes indeed, although I wish I would hear a meadowlark. They were on all the telephone wires when I was a kid, and I haven’t seen or heard one in years. What a lovely, idealized scene.
