Message from the Pine Barrens

TM9614 Message from the Pine Barrens 7×7 oil on paper

What are they telling us, these stalwart pines anchored in sand and stone> Maybe it’s a story about stubbornness, the will to survive? Or maybe it’s really a dance of joy, roots warmed by the sun and arms outstretched, reaching toward each other? I think it’s both. Plus teaching by example, showing we all have a role in keeping the tenuous balance on this, most beautiful, planet.
