"Sheltered - A Coastal Arbutus"
original acrylic painting 24" x 36" x 1.5 on canvas.
During the fiercest of winter storms she clings to her rocky bluff overlooking the raging ocean, as the cold howling winds push and pull at her limbs she endures through another west coast storm. But today is different the sun shines showing the beauty of her bark and her glossy leaves. Cedar waxwings hide in among her branches trilling songs of joy as they gorge on her fruit. Today she can rest.
