This landscape painting is inspired by a late winter horizon – spotted with the silhouettes of juniper trees, yellow-green fields of grass, and the deep red of a setting sun behind swirling clouds. A watercolor painting that would add a bit of color to any room.

End of Winter
On the winter horizon, there sets the sun.
A deep red glow when the day is done.
Behind the clouds reflecting colors,
over the fields – no sign of others.
Night birds take flight one by one,
from the tree silhouettes as evening comes.
This tree is the center of view from our front porch. I’ve spent countless mornings greeted by the sun coming up over the horizon, illuminating this large, wild tree growing all alone in the wide open field.
The last couple of summers have been hard on the tree, with drought and extreme heat. It did not grow full with leaves last season; the foliage was sparse and one side has slowly leaned further to the ground. This painting commemorates the beauty and breadth of the tree, and the lasting impression it will have on my memory.
