Prairie Pines in Central Oregon

The high desert of Central Oregon is home to sage brush and pine trees.  These two little pines are growing in a prairie just outside Smith Rock State Park.  I snapped a photo last July while watching my daughter competed in a 10k run.  It was early morning and the air was crisp, but the promise of a warm day hovered in the atmosphere.  It wasn't long until the long shadows of sunrise had disappeared and the heat of the day demanded relief. The painting is 6x8 inches on a gallery-wrapped canvas and has already SOLD. Visit my Etsy shop for more small landscape oil paintings.  There are more yellow landscape paintings at Fine Art America.
