Morning Light in the Pine Woods
oil on masonite

Morning light illuminating the pine trees in one of Omaha's parks. I had done a few sketches and taken a few photos last fall. While walking through this grove of young pine trees, I had to stop when the sun lit up the path. The woods took on an almost ethereal glow. I half expected to hear music or see faeries flying around. Instead a couple of teenagers appeared smoking cigarettes as they walked the path. I wonder if Thoreau had teenagers throwing stones in Walden's Pond as he contemplated the serenity of the woods?
