ACEO - Pine Trees

I enjoy seeing the silhouettes of pine trees against the sky.

To me it doesn't matter what time of day it is, they always look majestic.

I have a magnificent pair of pine trees at the back of my property, that I have painted many times over the years.

Even though it is the same pair of trees when it is sunrise, morning, afternoon, evening, sunset, or night, each painting is different.

Northern Spirit

My friend Heather has a stately old pine tree that is on a point of land that acts as a buffer for the small bay that is just in front of her sun room.

Its top branches have been bent and twisted by being constantly battered by the winds coming across the lake. Her husband, Roy put support cables on it to prevent it from being destroyed by the wind and ice storms.

This solitary pine is another of my favourite trees.

It is one I have painted in the many times of the day and in various media.
