National Pine

Inspired by the National Parks arrowhead symbol but reimagined as a northern pinecone, “National Pine’’ is a love letter to midwestern simplicity and craft. One of the main challenges for this piece was trying to evoke a sense of warmth and familiarity through color and tone, but also recreating a place that people would understand and recognize. This hometown project revolved around the sensibility that even in the coldest landscapes, you can still find warmth and comfort.

Copper foil-stamped on 18 x 24’’ French timber green cover. There is a limited quantity available, but If you'd like to purchase a poster, shoot me an email at cjpetts@gmail.com.
