I finished this plein air painting “The Old Veteran” at Point Lobos, CA — one of my favorite painting locations. It was a cloudy day, but this tree (really named “The Old Veteran”) really caught my eye. It communicated incredible strength, age, fortitude, and at the same time, graceful pose.
I think this is a keeper. I may enter in some shows, but don’t intend to sell. It’s hard for to part with some paintings.
