I walk by this old pine tree almost every day when I take our dog for his walk. It is in the parking lot of one of our local parks. It is beginning to show some signs of aging. Some of the limbs have broken off during recent rainstorms and there is evidence of insect damage. But I love this tree, and hope that this little painting has done it justice. I painted this one on gesso board that I painted black first. I like how some of the black peaks through in certain areas.
