This piece was begun many years ago when I still lived in New York City. I longed for nature, but the only place I ever saw trees was driving along the highway. I began this painting as part of a series about light coming through trees as you drive down the road. Then life intervened. I got busy with raising kids and running a business. Ten years later I found space in my life to make art again. I pulled out this painting and decided to finish it. It is the beginning of reexamining my love of landscape painting.
