"At the Tree Line"
Sometimes I have to test myself as to whether or not I am still able to paint realism without adding elements of a fantasized imagination, but by still being able to use my imagination. I enjoyed not being surreal for once so I painted another naturally realistic painting after this one, titled "Sierra Vista", where I still used my imagination.
This reminds me of the area just south of and before
coming into Flagstaff, Arizona.
