Shining Pine



8 X 10 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
$250 (FREE shipping in the U.S.)

My husband and I recently took a long weekend trip without the kids to Big Bear. We enjoyed each others company, had a several nice meals together, went hiking and since the kids weren’t around we actually managed to finish our sentences.

On our hike the light shining on the small pine tree and the strong shadows in this scene caught my eye. This is just off the Pacific Crest Trail. The weather was perfect for hiking, with beautiful blue skies and a light breeze.

So good the two of you reclaimed yourselves. When the kids come along we often forget that were not always someone's mom or dad.

LOVE this little painting and the light shining through the trees!

You have suggested a great atmosphere of peace in this painting. Lovely! Makes me want to get my hiking boots out.
