Guardian Southern Pines

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson


Standing tall and straight almost touching heaven are the hardy forests of pine trees that dot the landscape of North Carolina, Georgia and Florida and so many southern states. They greet you at many turns in the road. They echo beautiful cathedrals of grace and form. Take a moment and just breath in their sweet energy.

Cloaked in the first rays of the warm morning sun they watch over you, guardians of your day. And then at days end, they are there to greet you and renew your weary spirit.

Ahh that subtle something that fills our hearts.



Shown here is the 6x6" oil painting The Guardian Southern Pines as you might display it in your home or office. You may choose to frame the painting and place it on a small table easel on a desk, a bookshelf or side table.

All the small 6x6" paintings sold on my blog and web site are sold unframed with a small display easel.  They are shipped attractively packaged ready for gift giving or ready to be framed if you choose to do so.

Thank Kelley. There are a few of these trees I can see right out my studio window so I don't have to travel far to see them.
