About the Painting

Crystalline light filters through the boughs of pine trees in the eastern Sierra Nevadas. After sleeping among the soft pine needles the night before, warm and dry and away from the snow-covered landscape around us, I awoke to see beautiful clear light filtering through the pine needles in early morning.

"Pine Needles" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.
