This is the Palmer Lake Reservoir trail in the spring – the view you see on the way back down from the Lower Reservoir. In this painting I wanted to show the contrast of the messy scrub oak, the perfectly neat pine trees with dark trunks, and colorful and bright background of the rolling fields and mesas to the east.

I like how in the spring season, the browns of winter are turning into bright spring green again. You see a little of both seasons in this painting, before lush summer plant life fully takes over.
