Little Pine Tree, Sarajevo

Derek Alvarez, Little Pine Tree, Sarajevo, Hand Painted on the iPad using Procreate, 2018

This another painting inspired by a shot I took on a hike in the mountains by Sarajevo (posted the photo on my Instagram)… This little pine tree spoke to me… it was standing alone against a blue sky dotted with white fluffy clouds, and for me it symbolizes that life keeps going, no matter what. I mean, there are sections of this forest that still have landmines from the last war and yet, there is still beauty and life, new and old. No matter how long winter lasts, spring and summer always follow.
