This painting was inspired by Yosemite National Park. This stately pine tree was the color of burnished copper, a beautiful contrast against the distant purple-green cliffs. The painterly brush strokes are alive with motion, creaitng a mosaic of texture across the canvas.
This oil painting was done on 1/4" canvas-wrapped board. The painting has been framed in a classic plein air frame.
