Tire Swing

Where I live there are very tall fir and pine trees,
 but scattered among them are giant old oaks and maples.
These old twin oaks have grown in a neighbors side yard
and been the playground for several generations of children,
who have climbed into their branches and swung from a tire swing.
I began this painting as a plein air because I love the ancient oak trees
and the lovely lights and shadows, 
but felt the tire swing needed a child so I added him in my studio.
