This is another painting from that last trip to Carmel and Monterey with Ann. The weather was dark and gloomy for the whole trip, Ann was very ill, and these mossy trees were absolutely appropriate for the trip. I painted this one because I wanted to focus on one tree, instead of a group of trees, like in MacBeth. The hanging moss fascinated me and with the weather, how the branches spread out all across the top, and the motion of the bold brush strokes, the picture reminded me of Sleepy Hollow.
