"Hartman Rocks Old Timer" painting

This is a Plein Air oil painting I did of a scene in the Hartman Rocks area just south of Gunnison of one of the rock formations and a very old weathered Douglas Pine tree braced up against it.  The Hartman Rocks area is named after the first settler in Gunnison, Alonzo Hartman, who came here in 1872. The Hartman Rocks area is a high mountain desert area with unusual rock formations, sage and old weathered trees. The area is now a popular hiking and mountain biking area. This painting is 20x16 in size on stretched canvas. $1,300.00 plus H/S/, contact Rocky Mountain Frame and Gallery 228 North Main, Gunnison, CO. 81230 at (970)641-5033.
