Acrylic 6x6 on board

For years they've stood on the hill overlooking the Ayrshire landscape. Standing tall bleached more from the sharp winds than the sun, standing guard. The stories they could tell and the changes they've seen. I've painted them often from different angles, some have fallen and those left are showing they're age....but I never tire of them!

Beautiful use of green and a stately tribute to these majestic trees.

Lovely post to go with the painting. You use such peaceful blues and greens, conveys a summer feel for me.

Thanks Gail always makes me a little sad when another part of my surroundings seems to be disappearing. As an artist it's up to me in my own way to keep a part of it alive.....well try too!

nice. You are doing some really nice things Elizabeth.
Thanks for comments on my art blog.
That is a drop dead ranch and country side. The ranch was part of the Disney ranches. They had 2 in the Dubois area. In all seasons it is the most wonderful landscapes and artists are amazed at the possibilities.
