The Old Juniper Tree
Created by Meredith Nemirov
This is a giclee print of an original watercolor painting that was painted both on-site and in the studio. The subject is an old juniper tree located in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado. The park called it "Everyone's Favorite Tree." While on location, the artist painted to a continuous stream of comments by visitors saying what a beautiful, incredible tree this juniper is. Silhouetted against the sky, the movement of the tree really conjures the magic feeling of a genie coming out of a bottle. The twisting of the trunk leading into the canopy of leaves supplies a contrast of old gnarling wood with new fresh evergreen needles. Each print is numbered, titled, and signed by the artist.
