Texas Landscape Painting

 "Hillside Sentinel"
24" x 30"
Oil on Panel
No. 91

In this Texas Landscape Painting, "Hillside Sentinel," an original oil on panel, I was inspired to paint the beauty of a live oak tree overlooking the Texas Hill Country. I wanted to show the canopy of the tree and promote the illusion of depth. Done from imagination, inspired by the landscape around Palo Pinto County.

I consider Tree painting a genre' unto itself, considering that a good painting of a tree generally uses the elements of the landscape as a background.
