Lone Tree

This little tree painting is 5 x 7 on gessoed hardboard. It is based on a tree that grows next to the parking lot of the Snake Lake Nature Center in Pierce County, Washington State. I'm not sure what kind of tree it is. Its bark looks like a Madrona, but it is much smaller and more compact than other Madronas I've seen. The Nature Center has many native plants growing near the park entrance. It is a delightful place to take a walk; I go there often.
