Oil on masonite, after a Bierstadt painting where it was called a cedar tree I think.  I painted this one because my wife hung an empty frame, with a long and skinny vertical format, as a decorator item.  Then she said yes after I jokingly suggested I fill it with this picture, which was the only thing I'd seen in that long vertical format.   She actually likes it a lot, as do I except it takes a lot of light to see the rich detail in the foreground.  There are a man and a horse hidden there, also.
