Way of the Oak – California Impressionist Landscape Oil Painting of Oak Tree on Trail – by Karen Winters

April 28th, 2011


“The Way of the Oak”
12 x 16 oil on canvas

See more Pasadena area paintings here

This graceful old oak arches over a trail on Eaton Canyon, beckoning the hiker to walk under the arch and continue their journey. Scenes like this are typical of trails all over California, though. From the Arroyo Seco of Pasadena, the Cerro Gordo campgrounds of California’s Central Coast, the equestrian trails of La Canada, where I live, and the trails of Irvine Park, Malibu Creek State Park, Agoura, and more. I’ve seen so many places like this that it is truly iconic of California, especially in the springtime when the grasses are still fresh and only beginning to turn to gold.
