But, despite that, there are trees that survive and become majestic. Periodically, you'll spot a lonely, enormous oak off in a field.
This painting is small, only about 4.25 x 5 inches and is a three color palette--indian yellow, cadmium red, and phthalo blue. The blue and red make a lovely dark gray rather than purple, which I would not necessarily have expected.
Since we've left, the property has turned over at least twice--I wonder if any of the trees we put in are still there? I think I'll see if I can find out....
