This is a photo I took at a scenic overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. The tree trunk curved so the tree was growing straight up against a sheer wall of rock. It was the first pioneer in a new territory.
This is a closer shot of the same tree.
This is my interpretation of the scene. I still have a few adjustments that I want to make to this painting. And I may paint the scene again. Many artists paint the same scene or very similar scenes over and over because there are many ways to interpret what we see.
