"Keeper Of The Canyon" ©

Not one thing in the Sierra Madre Canyon is straight. The canyon is filled with homes from the early 1900's, built as vacation homes to the residents of Los Angeles. The Craftsman styled homes have tons of bedrooms, huge dining rooms, screened in porches that wrap the upper decks and tons of river rock surfaces. All designed for the extended families summer fun. The roads are narrow and snake up the hill, towards the dam, cooled by trees from the heat of the summers day. The tree I have painted is at the start of the canyon, hovering over the road and bridge that crosses the canyon creek. I am working on a studio painting of this scene and took advantage of my packed palette to paint this daily painting.
