"Ponderosa Pine"

The Montana prairie boasts few trees, but years ago (about 123 to be exact) when the main ranch house was built, as a finishing touch they transplanted two Ponderosa pines from the neighboring hills. These grew to an amazing size and now act as a landmark for this area. This is a partial view of one of these trees from the southern window of my studio.

  1. Hi Deb,
    I haven't responded to any of the many beautiful images that come from you to me....but that doesn't mean
    I am not enjoying every single one of them! You remain one of my very favorite artists!
    I have a special love affair with trees, so this one in particular touched me. The colors, especially the reflected blues
    on the shadow side of the tree really make your painting "pop".
