Hayward Lake Park is a beautiful place to visit. Many people make use of this lake, the large dog park, and the old railway trail running along its western side. On the far north portion of the park is a gazebo, which was a leftover prop from the 1989 film, "We're No Angels". There is a bench next to this gazebo where I will often sit whenever I am in the park and just want to be in a peaceful place and meditate. I have done this for over 10 years. It is a quiet part of the park where few people frequent. This is my solitude place.
Directly in front of this bench stands a large Douglas Fire tree. I have always admired this tree and thought, "One day I will paint this tree". So I did. I rendered it in a small painting, making sure Hayward Lake appears in the background.
