I painted this amazing tree on the grounds of Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California. This was my second trip there to be part of 'the artists round table'. A very affable group of artists share a lodge, and have evening critiques there for a week in June, and its been going for about 30 years.
The numbers of these particular pine trees seem to be dwindling. I haven't learned if it is just the normal end of their life cycle, or a result of climate change.
