Watercolor landscape painting of Limber Pine root by Janet Tarjan Erl.

Limber Pine Root

Medium: Mixed Aqueous, Image Size: 23″h x 28″w, 1985.

This is the overturned root of a dead Limber Pine (notice the rock). I love complex, contorted shapes, so when I hiked past this ancient limber pine root, I wanted to do a painting of it. I saw this root on the east side of the White Mountains, near Boundary Peak, Nevada. These trees can live up to 4,000 years, so I can only imagine how old this root was – maybe twice that age.

This painting was juried into the Aqueous Open’86, 1986, Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, Pittsburgh, PA. (Merit Award).

Original is sold.
