I have stood in this exact same place to paint other "seens". It is just south of the Singleton Studio and it offers a great view of three white pines reaching for the sly. The sun was on my back and it was the second warm day of the spring of 2015. A group of turkey vultures soared by and I think they landed near the pioneer homestead. There seemed to be three of everything - threee white pines, threee turkey vultures, threee blue birds, threee honey bees that investigated my palette ... It made me think of the letter from Robert Genn which was republished the day that I did this painting ... He used threee Tom Thomson paintings to illustrate his thoughts.... and yes, why shouldn't there be three e's in threee?
