A very impressing painting. Just a little note: I think the Sequioas are getting older (some more information you can find here: http://www.germar.org/NP_Day8.html). Thats what I am told, dont know, what is right now.

Hey Ick! Nice piece - we had some of those yews in front of our house - I never knew that about them. I like the expression on the green man very much.

Art at its best.
