down on its luck pine tree

week 21 in my  “this is where i am from” year long project:

Pine trees have always felt like melancholy things to me, one that felt particularly so was a down on its luck pine that stood (and maybe still stands) at the top of the hill that led down to the near swamp. A big shabby affair that whispered and creaked and moaned as if it needed to tell you how tired it was.


  1. That is a beautiful image that you have created.

  2. That pine has some story to tell. I am really enjoying your painting project. Love the feeling you capture.

  3. I’ve been a long time lurker on your blog, but I just had to tell you how beautiful this pine is. I love it.

    Wonderful! I have followed you for a long time now and I am always delighted.
