LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS


Piney Lake

*Sold* This commissioned painting was meant to highlight the vibrant colors found in a landscape and how they can inspire the viewer. The client wanted to see the changing colors in the aspen trees and how they contrast the pine trees. Working on this piece gave me a great appreciation for the time and effort it takes to replicate the subtleties of nature.
