Really hard to see. Cedrus? Need foliage image.

I would wager that what you have seen is "Monterey Cypress" - Cupressus macrocarpa. If you had a better close-up
of the foliage, we could say with more certainty.

Thank you for your help. I will get some better pictures. After doing some additional research, it looks like it is in the cedar family. Truth be told, it looks exactly like this tree, which the artist labels an incense cedar. But when I look-up the incense cedar, it does not really look like that??

The bark looks OK for a cedar; my best guess is a Deodar Cedar Cedrus deodara. It doesn't fit incense-cedar (which is not a cedar), that has more orangey, stringy-textured bark.
