Australian Rain Forest – December 18, 2009

“All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.”
Alexandre Dumas

I ran across this one recently.  I painted it last year for a postcard exchange.  It went to Switzerland, to my friend Joel.  I liked the simplicity of it.  It just felt right, if that makes any sense.  As cold as it is outside, I wouldn’t mind being in a rain forest a while.

About Alexandre Dumas

Popular French author Alexandre Dumas was famed for his adventure stories, including The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. He was born in 1802 near Paris. His mulatto father was a general in the French Army who died young, leaving his family destitute. Dumas began as a playwright, but newspapers were eager for serialized fiction, so he adapted a play into his first novel. He died in 1870; in 2002 his body was moved to the Panthéon to recognize his role in French literature.

    I like the strong and straight trunks in tis one, Beth.It goes very well with the quote for today. I believe wisdom most often comes with age so the wait is appropriate. I believe we have to live a lot to get there. Thanks for this.
