Recently Completed: “Dusk Light”
New Hampshire’s White Pines elicit a “love’em or hate’em” response from those who live in this area. They are invasive, and have filled many farmer’s meadows, turning pastures to woods. Regardless how one feels about this tree, it is an icon of New Hampshire and northern New England. While I don’t like too many white pines on my property, I do like them, especially the shapes their branches and needles create at dusk. “Dusk Light” is of an old farm down the road, and as the sun sets, the cleared meadow beyond the stand of pines allows the setting sun to illuminate the remaining trees and create interesting silhouetted pattern from their branches.
