Miniature in the Mail #29: "Out of Stone"

"Out of Stone," 4x6in., oil on masonite

I was climbing a mountain in an area where there were only rocks. The sun was blaring down and I was whiny. Then over a crest I saw this small, gnarly tree growing out of a crevice with nothing it in, not even dust. And I was humbled.
