This work was completed during a 2016 Artist-In-Residence with the Angeles National Forest. I spent a week painting in and around Little Jimmy Trail Camp, located in the eastern part of the San Gabriel Mountains at about 7,500′ elevation. Each day I chose an area around the camp and made several paintings through the day.
I completed this painting on a clear bright day as I perched on the ridge leading to Mt. Islip. The pine was silhouetted against an intensely blue sky, with the clarity of the color accentuated by the high elevation.

This work is sold framed in a natural wood float frame, wired for hanging (11.5″ x 9.5″ x 1.25″). The interior of the frame is painted a flat black, which sets off the colors of the painting. The painting panel is mounted on a wood cradle to mount within the frame.
