Painting - Acrylic And Oil On Canvas
I called this piece "Promise" as in "Promise of a new day".
I think morning walks in the forest are one of the most peaceful and beautiful moments there are.
I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed painting it.
"What does he plant who plants a tree?
He plants the friend of sun and sky;
He plants the flag of breezes free;
The shaft of beauty, towering high, he plants a home to heaven anigh.
For song and mother-croon of bird, in hushed and happy twilight heard -
The treble of heaven's harmony.
These things he plants who plants a tree."
-- Henry Cuyler Bunner, the Heart of the Tree
"Trees have about them something beautiful and attractive even to the fancy,
since they cannot change their places,
are witnesses of all the changes that take place around them;
and as some reach a great age, they become, as it were, historical monuments,
and like ourselves they have a life, growing and passing away,
--not being inanimate and unvarying like the fields and rivers.
One sees them passing through various stages,
and at last step by step approaching death,
which makes them look still more like ourselves."
-- Wilhelm von Humboldt
