Arts Everyday Living: A Tree at Sunset, Red Glow of Evening Light


Piet Mondrian, Avond (Evening):  The Red Tree, 1908-1910, oil on canvas, Gemeentemuseum den Haag, Hague, Netherlands

Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky…..

Kahlil Gibran, Sand and Foam

Before Dutch modernist Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) created his series of abstract works of geometric forms and basic colors, he portrayed the more recognizable image of a tree above, transformed by the glow of evening light.  Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) is a beloved Lebanese-American poet whose book The Prophet continues to draw seekers of spiritual enlightenment.
