I like the was that the white pines cut into the sky. The white pine to the right had an osprey nest at its top. The ospreys keep any branches from going higher. I almost called this painting "The Nest" but I didn't think that many people would get it without an explanation. The birds were gone for the season. The sky was gray and the only real colour was from the few leaves remaining on the deciduous trees.
I used a lot of paint on this small, slippery surface.
