New Growth

This sketch is from late January. No thanks to the Kincade fire, the family ranch had been charred black for weeks, then we had our first rain and they magically turned a brilliant shade of green. I did my best to capture it.

Interesting side note, because the fires burned back all the grass it exposed a bunch of petrified wood in the area where I’m standing.
