Old Growth (pastel) by Polly Castor

The redwoods are beautiful in their powerful, enduring presence, and are a symbol of sustainability. Also to me, they preach consistency, perseverance, and growth in the best possible way. The older they are, the more stately and inspiring. The more they reach for the light, the more nourished they are and the better they grow. Meanwhile, in their balance and wisdom, just by being themselves, they breathe out into the world just what it needs. They are an example of vibrant health for all of us.

The painting is 22″x30″ and done in pastel. You can see the entire work above, and close-ups below.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
