Evergreen Landscape

5 x 7 oil on hardboard
This painting represents an area near Highway 101 and Shelton in Washington State. Shelton used to call itself the Christmas tree capital of the world. Clearly many trees still grown there, but a huge decline in the logging industry has changed that little town and much of the Northwest. This train tressel in the middle of the wilderness represents the change. It is based on a photo I took last fall as I passed through the area.
