I thought these trees I see through my windows each day had their leaves tilted downward, but to my surprise, one day I was looking to paint them and I noticed the trees were growing upward. It’s an interesting exercise (often a part of classical art training) to look at something and notice how it looks as opposed to your idea of it. It was many years after living here that I looked more closely and saw these pines as they are.
