Spring in the Valley

Parkway Series #146   12 x 16   oil   sold

When traveling from the valley parkway to higher elevations, you only drive a few feet before you notice the lack of green.  Spring in the valley comes several weeks ahead of Spring on the mountains.  In this painting I actually added the silhouetted leaves on the foreground tree because I could not stand the wintry look of bear limbs.  However, the yellow greens of the valley can be seen in the distance!
