I have your painting in my reading room in Tucson. The room is decorated with leather and wood furniture. The colors in your painting remind me of the single day I spent in the hills outside of Ulaan Baator, Mongolia with my girlfriend in 2010. To get there, we took a monstrous truck that could drive through rivers, and we crossed these birch forests in the middle of the day. With the pure, dry air, the sky was dark blue, and the sun was dazzling off of the leaves of the birch.
