:wave: Hi, this one is acrylics on a 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas and was a birthday present for a friend who lives out west in Colorado. Diane said this forum would be a good place to share this. :p I didn't intend at first for it to look humorous but it sure turned out that way and someone nick-named this one 'Clint East Wood' LOL! (Cross-posted from the ab/con forum)
I lived out in Wyoming for 3 years and the scenery out west is so breathtaking and inspiring, would love to see it again!

It's delightful, Lynnie... Thanks for posting it here. I chuckle every time I see it, kind of an organic stereotype Western look. I love the 'Clint East Wood'. :rolleyes: Have you given it to your friend yet? I'd be interested in the reaction!

Thanks Diane. :wave: Yes, Ladywolf1 (Cheri) mentioned that she recieved it in the ab/con thread where I first posted this one. We were kind of talking in code there LOL. Her birthday is this Friday. The funny thing is, at first I was trying to paint a tunnel through the tree like the one I saw at Mt. Rushmore many years ago but it ended up looking like legs! :lol:

not just legs, but bow-legged. I can almost picture a giant horse under it.

Ranger Dan, that's a great idea and wish I had thought of that LOL! :lol: my husband smiled and said the tree was bow-legged too! :lol:
