Juniper Snag #38



On got to paint this one sitting on the shoulder of the road at Lava Beds National Monutment, California. The morning hadn't quite warmed up yet, but I had a good jacket on and my hands stayed warm. Several years ago this snag caught my attention; and many years before that the heart of the snag got burned out by a fire. One branch continues to live on.

Pelican fountain pen and watercolor on Strathmore 140# cold press watercolor paper.
