General Grant Redwood Tree in Winter oil painting by David Saunders
Painting by David Saunders. “I painted the General Grant because it was the first giant redwood I had seen when I was 19 on a trip from England. I can still remember the awe I felt in its presence. I have since visited it many times, and it feels like an old friend.” —David Saunders
