Gracing the Hilltop

Gracing the Hilltop, 8 x 10

Last weekend it cleared up long enough for me to paint outside a few times, and this piece was from one of those moments. I found a covered spot, and it rained a little while I painted, but I was dry.

The hillsides all around the Hunt area are covered in a variety of trees, but mostly oak and cedar. These oak trees graced the top of the hill and its side--a common sight is the light peeking through the narrow trunks of the trees at the top and the silhouette of the trees as the sun sets. One of my favorite views.
