A tug of war exists between sky and sea. Stuck in the middle, a tree climbs out of earth to scrape the side of the skyline, searching for an opening. More sky is revealed. And the struggle continues.
This is one of a series of landscapes and street scenes based on my photos of the Seattle Washington region. After visiting Issaquah, Washington this painting was created in the Pacific Northwest of North America and illustrates the richness of texture and light in the Seattle area.
