Back to the Banyon

Have you ever noticed how huge Banyon trees can get?
The ones in Sherwood Forrest (the back 4 at Granada) alone are mahusive (look it up in the Dubonics Dictionaryhttp://www.dubonics.blogspot.com/ ).
Last summer for my show I painted a Banyon tree based on this sketch--- then this summer I painted a Double Banyon, based on another sketch---inspired by the Banyon canopy down parts of University Drive.
Anyhow--- I love these trees---even though I was never the kid who would climb then, I just don't travel vertically unless riding in something motorized like an elevator or plane.
I'm sure there will be other Banyon trees in my painting future.
