This grey scale toile motif represents defining characteristics of my home state, California.  Although this has no geographical accuracy, the elements of “The Golden State” morph to represent a sense of unity and pride.  Half dome, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Redwood Forest, the Hollywood sign, the California Brown Bear, the ocean, and the palm trees are all iconic points of beauty.
