Mom and Dad Oil on Gessobord 6 x 6
We're back in Wyoming on the family ranch. I've been told that on the entire 1,500 or so acres there are exactly seven trees. All seven are located near the old family cabin. On our last visit, Sister Florence made the great analogy that each tree represented a member of her family that used to live there. All but two of those members are gone now but all seven trees remain. You might guess, by the title of this painting, who Sister Florence felt these two trees represented.
On a separate note, I love this kind of lighting. A storm has just passed. The clouds moving into in the eastern sky were still dark and ominous but the foreground was lit up by the returning sun.
