Oil painting My Favorite Tree by Crystal Dipietro

My Favorite Tree

oil & pencil on canvas - 58" x 36"
Every time I see this tree, it takes my breath away & tears come to my eyes. I make a trip to visit at least once every year. I knew I needed to paint it & this is my first attempt. Hidden away in a secret spot, this is the largest & most beautiful of the ancient bristlecone pines I've seen in the Spring Mountains.
