Two figures, one male, one female. The female is lit by sunlight. The male is in darkness. This piece is set deep in the woods of Western NC. A loving couple ends the days work with relaxation in a thicket in the forest. Above them, a pop of sunlight makes its way through the forest canopy just as the female casually leans back to adjust her hair. The light catches her just right, and she is illuminated like a forest nymph.
