In this landscape depicting "morning," a barefoot boy on the back of a muscular plow horse plods towards an opening between two fence posts. Beyond the posts is a grand sweep of sky in which three birds soar in the light atmosphere of dawn. On the left is a dark majestic old tree. To the right and in the foreground as well is a grassy meadow. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
