Snow Bound 7" x 5"
Illuminated by the low afternoon sun, this set of trees stands out against their larger counterparts in the shade. You can tell they are young mountain hemlocks by their tips and within the next couple of years, they will bend over like candy canes. They are most likely the offspring of the trees behind them.
My passion, which started early in life, is creating paintings of wild animals in their natural habitat. For me the best part of being a professional artist is spending time in the field studying and observing birds and animals. We live in such an amazing world, I just want to soak in as much as possible and share it with others through my paintings.
