In this painting, the sun rises over a distant mountain and a beautiful display of color dances in the sky. The bright colors contrast with a tall conifer that stands towering above its piney comrades. Set slightly to the left of center, the pine breaks the painting into two segments. To the left of the conifer are the deep blue hues of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and to the right, the blues have mixed with the warm notes of the sunrise to create luscious purples that are contrasted by the yellow-greens of the shrubbery on land. It would be difficult to gaze at this painting and not be struck by the beauty of nature that graces the Appalachian Mountains.
The title of this colorful nature landscape artwork is The Poetry of Spring.
