Notes: Mt. Tamalpais is the predominate peak in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is 2,572 feet (749 meters) and considered one of the prime recreational sites in Northern California. There is a legend that the mountain is a sleeping Indian (Native American) maiden. The mountain provides a distinctive profile when viewed from any direction.

I chose Sumi ink and my favorite (and largest) brush to catch the mountain as a powerful symbol of Nature. The brush strokes on the gray scale paper provided a wonderful juxtaposition of flow and texture when painting.

Please enjoy my personal visit to this iconic landscape.
