6x12" oil on masonite
"There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
there is rapture in the lonely shore,
there is society where none intrudes
by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
I love not man the less, but nature more"

I have such a hard time coming up with a title for my paintings. It's always "Lake with Sunset" or "Tree." I'm not creative that way. Then recently something I was painting reminded me of a poem I like, and I realized that is a good source for titles. It's not hard to find a snippet of poetry that reflects what I was trying to say in a painting.
