Old Scenic Highway - 13' x 16"


I painted here last Spring and took that information for this larger painting. May go even larger. This is considered a work in progress and a few changes need to be made. The tree on the left has branches that are regular and need to be more random. Then maybe a few highlights on the other pine trees.

This is beautiful, Donna! I love the feeling of distance. This is the kind of painting I want to walk right into.

Hi Donna T. Thank you, Thank you! I am happy with this painting and feeling good. I got a Scott Christensen DVD for Christmas and had it going while I painted this. He talks about values and I think it helped.

Thank you Joni, and for taking the time to post this wonderful comment. This is now a favorite spot of mine. The wind does blow here most days so painting here can be difficult.
