Old friend

Up in Michigan, in the woods behind the Gilpin farm was an old pine tree. Perfectly groomed for climbing. If you could brave the mosquitoes, it was always worth a visit. This painting was done for a class demonstration. So it's pretty loose, and I left off a branch or two. I did a bigger version that is at mom and dad's house. I suppose the tree is still there.
