Autumn in the San Juans
Original 15" x 11.5"
Gouache on Illustration Board

Pacific madrone, with its remarkable multi-colored and partially peeling bark, its dark evergreen leaves, and berries that become brilliant red in late fall, adds to the vibrant color that graces The San Juan Islands in the autumn. The red berries of the madrone (also called "madrona") rarely were eaten, but were not generally cherished by native people. Native coastal peoples considered the white snowberries to be poisonous in large amounts, but used them in tiny doses to settle upset stomachs. Rose hips and leaves of the Nootka rose often accompanied steamed foods for flavoring. A Makah canoe, containing a cedar box and oars, is secured to the bank by a cedar-bark rope.
