Storyteller

This old tree has stories to tell, of days gone by when times were simpler and perhaps more isolated. She stands with poised attention, overlooking the inlet at Sacajawea State Park here in the Pasco / Burbank area. Relatives of hers were likely present during the times when Lewis and Clark visited the area along the Columbia River. Though I've been told the river was narrower since dams weren't present then.

I painted this a few years back in the summer, and recently updated some of the shadows during winter studio time. "Storyteller" 11x14, oil on board, ©Laura Gable
