pastel painting of a lone tree against a pink sky

Walk This Way

In this painting, the pine that stands sentinel along the path is straight and tall. Its lower branches undulate toward the light and it seems to point my way forward. I love the strata in the background, a low cloud bank creeping upward, blue, then pink, then blue again. A mist rises in front of a dark band of pines, silhouetted against the brightening sky.
