Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

I love this view out toward our front gate, just as the morning sun clears the tree tops of the woods across the road.
I’ll be delivering this painting to its new home in Shreveport on Monday. The new owner says she was drawn to it because it reminds her of her childhood home, which, as it turns out, is just about ten miles up the road from us!
