California Oak Wildflower Landscape – Karen Winters

The Oak’s New Spring Gown
9 x 12 oil on canvas panel


In the western foothills of the Sierra range, valley oaks begin to deck themselves in fresh green foliage … lacy layers of silken fluff. Out in the meadows they look like girls going to their first big dance. The late light of day puts the lady in a spotlight as admiring wildflowers look on.

    Very nice. I like this one a lot. I’ve seen the sunshine glinting off the grassses making them glow on the landscape. Very nice.
