"Refuge's Slough" pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

The Humboldt Bay Refuge is a favorite spot for painters in Humboldt County.  This is a view looking north from the foot bridge when the eucalyptus were still standing tall along side the slough.  Most of them are gone now, either removed by man or Mother Nature.  I've painted many scenes like this as I love to paint eucalyptus even if they're not "native" to this country.  They're still fun to paint.  This is approximately 10 X 8 set in a 14 X 11 mat.  To bid CLICK HERE.
