Description
This view created en plein air of a trail meandering through a vertical stand of pine trees, reveals an inviting access point through an intimate forest, with an abstracted mountain range painted in deep blue in the far distance. The quickly described luminescent light of the sky is interrupted by the striations of the branches and trunks of the evergreens. The simplified forms and shapes lend this landscape by Hanson Puthuff a dreamlike feeling.
