Baby its cold outside
This pastel is my response to the bloody cold weather, I withdraw to my studio and memories and re-create past experiences. Crystal, Michael and I came across many amazing vistas when we were down in southern Utah and this lone Pinion tree was one of them. They are extremely hardy trees and seem to grow anywhere, they remind me of our hardy pine trees in the Precambrian shield country growing out of rocks. Anyways, it was a hot day and just looking at this painting takes me back.
