Description: I originally captured the image that inspired this painting while hiking with my son this past autumn. The sharp angle of the late afternoon sunlight created a golden hue on the prairie at the edge of this oak savanna. As light streamed through the forest, I stood for a moment frozen as it appeared two wise old trees were locked in an eternal waltz. The scene reminded me of the following poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1897), which also inspired the title of this piece:
Live thy Life, Young and old, Like yon oak, Bright in spring, Living gold;
Summer-rich Then; and then Autumn-changed Soberer-hued Gold again.
All his leaves Fall’n at length, Look, he stands, Trunk and bough Naked strength.
