This is the big tree below the lodge at the Peaks of Otter under which many have spread a blanket to picnic or just rested on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The diagonal composition of light and dark and the "calling" of this image persuaded me to paint it. I am amazed at the calling from specific images that I feel in selecting the image to paint. It is as though the God of Creation calls to me from behind His created image...."Look, but don't just look, really see, see Me, feel the Awe and see My Beauty that is here!"
