Time lurches forwards and backwards in this poignant imagined timber harvest scene depicting a logged-out slope of land in Southern Humboldt County. But alongside the dead stumps and eroded ground, hope grows anew in the form of tough young fir and redwood trees. The majesty of deep dark cool mountains finds a warm richly colored hillside spot in the morning light. Life goes on and grows on after loggers abscond. Nature takes over and gives new green to the land.
