from the sketchbook vault: tree and shadow

sycamore tree portion in pencil.
bidwell park, chico, ca.

sycamores are so elegant!  bidwell park is redolent with them.  i used to look at them and wish they could come to life like c.s.  lewis' trees in the chronicles of narnia.

two comments for this guy. numero uno: I think this picture wants a chico shout out. :)
number dos: I was gardening in the miserable cold today but was listening to the Lord of the Rings (not Narnia, but you know good ol' Louis) and am at the place where the fatty willow swallows up poor pippen and merry. :S
love you!
