Mary found this grove of Aspen trees near Echo Lake in Colorado.  She used the Venetian painting technique consisting of a charcoal under drawing, a grisaille, and layer upon layer of pigment to create an almost three dimensional look.  The process is very time consuming with this painting having taken several months to complete.
