oil on canvas
16 x 20

Wishing you all a peaceful Holiday and New Year! It's not a pine tree.... When the temperature drops below zero, (which it has done already a few times this year), my little studio just can't keep up with the cold. So I have set up in the house and painted a few times this month. There is a dead birch tree out the front window that I love looking at, especially since it is usually hosting some woodpecker or other bird. I painted this over the course of a couple days, when we were lucky to have the clear thin blue sky of winter.

How lovely that something at the end of its life in this tree form can be so beautiful.

A very happy looking dead tree. Cool!
