Evening Pines

Evening Pines

East Texas is referred to as the Piney Woods. Tall, elegant stands of loblolly and long leaf pine can be found just about everywhere here. I am particularly fond of them, not only because they are visually interesting but because they remind me of north Florida (where I grew up) and south Georgia (where I spent some time in school and on horseback). I have in mind to do a number of larger paintings of pines and this little piece is a start on that project.

Calming as always! Makes me consider getting back to landscapes so I can be out of doors, when it gets warmer, it is 17 degrees out today - brrrr.

Thank you Edward and thanks for visiting!

Hi Tina-yes, too cold here for plein air! Merry Christmas!

Deborah, this painting reminds me of places in South Carolina, the lowcountry. I can almost feel the heat and humidity coming off the canvas.

Hi Deborah. I do think pines are particularly evocative of the South- at least for me. Thanks for visiting and Happy Holidays!
