Pinery Boy by RedFieldsOfNone Pinery Boy by RedFieldsOfNone
I felt like illustrating one of my favorite songs.  A pinery boy is a person who works at a place that grows pine trees, but was also used to lumberjacks and loggers. The pinery boy in the song was thought to be one of those men who drive the logs down the river.

I focused on two stanzas for this scene.

"O pilot, O pilot, tell me true
Is my sweet Willie among your crew?
O tell me quick and give me joy
For none other will I have but my sweet pinery boy"

"O, auburn was the color of his hair
And his eyes were blue and his cheeks were fair
And his lips were of a ruby fine
Ten thousand times they've met with mine"

Thank you-the Wisconsin Historical Society website was oh so helpful in getting the dells to look right, as well as the clothes.
