Cottonwood Glow

Watercolor on paper, 6" x 6"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.

The cottonwood is my wife Brenda's favorite tree. I love it too. They grow to great heights, stately and elegant, along the river bottoms. I like to sit in a grove and watch their broad leaves shimmer in the sun, much like aspen or birch. I close my eyes and listen to the sound they make in the wind, like the chatter of a thousand voices softly saying "Shhhhh."
