Tree Portraits, Golden Gate Park

Love trees? Love parks? Love Golden Gate Park? Love fresh interpretations of all of the above? Then I think you’ll enjoy “Tree Portraits, Golden Gate Park,” an exhibit of pastels by Heath Massey, currently on show (through April) at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Thanks to Heath for the show, and for this blog share! More info is also available on the website of the SFBG: https://www.sfbg.org/art-exhibit

golden gate park: views from the thicket

Please stop by the Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture at the San Francisco Botanical Garden to see the current exhibit of pastel portraits that I have painted over the past few years of various trees throughout Golden Gate Park.  The show will be on view through April 29.  Library Hours:  10 am – 4 pm (closed Tues. and most holidays).

My aim in these portraits is to capture the distinctive charm, beauty and character of individual trees, as well as to convey a range of landscapes in the park.  The trees are identified by both common and botanical name and the location of each pastel is shown on a map of the park.  So you can “tour” the entire park from the dry, warm interior of this charming library.  Let it rain!

This is also an excellent time to visit…
