Up in Dixon for a spring afternoon. I love the undulating, flesh-toned hills in Dixon....[Note to Self: Need to spend more time up there...]

Again, the sun hardly showed itself, so there's little contrast of shadows and light in this piece.

Below are a couple images of the early stages of this painting — a good example of how I go about 'carving' a tree trunk with paint (see earlier post for more details).
