This Art Print of the Bristlecone Pine is from my original illustration of a Bristlecone Pine, Earth’s oldest living thing.


The colors of this print are shades of royal blue.


The ancient Bristlecone pines are inspiring helmsmen in the sea of change, having long braved the harsh environment at the timberline. They are the oldest known living things on earth, some of them dating to 4,600 years old. Most of the planet’s inhabitants would be no match for the high winds, short growing seasons and bitter cold that these beauties have withstood. Their gnarled features have been shaped and turned by the wind. They’ve been described as “half living, half dead,” in that there are parts of the trees with no bark, while an adjacent side can still have bark with living, growing needles and cones. If you’ve lived a long life, be proud of yourself and these trees as well. You’re a survivor.


I made this print with a white border so that you can either place it in an 8x10 picture frame without mat, or an 8.5x11 or larger picture frame, using your mat. (Shown with frame, not included).


For 8x10 frames, just place the glass around the image and draw a pencil line, then cut that line. If you want to place in 8.5x11 frame, there would be plenty of room for a mat.


The print is on quality poster paper, suitable for framing, with or without mat, in a standard picture or poster frame. (Frame and mat not included. Picture frames are widely available at most department stores.) The print will be shipped in an appropriate sized mailing tube.
