The inspiration for this commissioned painting came from traveling through California in the spring of 2018. The surface and colours of the rock formations in the Sierra Nevada and Mojave Desert, the blue skies, different shades of green in Central Valley, the drive up the Pacific Highway with its enormous Redwood trees, even the giant Sequoias up in the Sierra, still surrounded by snow that time of year – all this condensed, blended and abstracted into the lines, grooves and tones used in this painting.
