I can’t think of a landscape more quintessentially Californian than spring’s poppy covered hillsides – and when you add oak trees it’s downright iconic. In this painting my objective was to capture the feeling of the radiant hillside, crowned by sprawling oaks. The Fresno Bee reports that this is one of the best years for wildflowers in a long time. I don’t know why – we haven’t had an abundance of rain, but whatever conditions brought about this abundance, I’m glad.

More California spring landscapes to come …

  2. Oh, I love this! I feel I am there, with the breeze and scent of spring. The view looking upward is so interesting too.

  3. Hey Karen,
    Up here in the Southern Sierra, we’ve had some good rain and snow, so maybe that’s why the wildflowers are flourishing? Just a thought, since here in Tehachapi we’re at the beginning of our wildflower season. The poppies haven’t yet arrived (we’re at 4000 feet). I love your paintings! You’ve captured the essence of our land!
