The Garry Oaks look out from Henderson Hill. An impressionist oil painting of the west coast in winter dawn. More about the painting process can be found at Creative Potager post Story of the HENDERSON HILL Original Oil Painting

Every once in awhile a special connection is made between a painting and another creative being. In this case it is with poet and more Bat-Ami Gordin

Henderson Hill

On Henderson Hill any time of the year
  the branches arabesque in the breeze.
Birds boldly appear, on the tips of twigs
  that smear into clouds from the trees.
As a doe grazes calmly with her twins,
  the heavens and sky, seem to  freeze.
Prepare your mind to paint serenity;
  equanimity pacifies enduring unease.
