This Place Where We Live ~ "Autumn's Light"



"Autumn's Light"
oil
36" x 36"

I like the delicacy of the birch tree
The way the old bark and the young exist side by side
And how the old layer pulls away to reveal the new
 They are like people as we learn and grow
 When we are young and fresh
 Our outer layer is smooth, unscarred
 As we grow and age our character shines through the lines on our face
Much like the pealing bark reveal her spirit beneath

  1. A stunningly captivating creation of reality with more than a touch of magical hues.
    The poetic metaphor of birch and bark akin to humans aging is so appropriate and so true.
    thank you for sharing!
