9 x 12 oil painting on canvas
Dramatically lit by a blazing sunset, this lone eucalyptus stands guard against the coming night. The gray-green foliage, stirred by the breeze, takes on the sunset colors. I’ve seen scenes like this in Carpinteria, Orange County, Cambria, San Luis Obispo, Fillmore, Fallbrook, and even close by in Pasadena and La Canada. Eucalyptuses are everywhere in Southern and Central California.
