Ponderosa Pine III
I've done several watercolors of this particular Ponderosa Pine in Yosemite and wanted to abstract it. (2011 was the beginning of my interest in abstraction.) Remembering a teacher who said tree trunks are not really brown (there are lots of other colors in there), I decided to make this tree pink. Once I'd done the first stroke of pink, other things had to change. This was a lot of fun.
