This is the latest painting I've done -
Who softly treads these forest floors
And casts her charms to gentle wind,
Cause rustle of the turning leaves
When stretching velvet mossy wing,
By deadwood tree in quiet grove
A single bird begins to sing,
Of faerie tale by evening's light,
The moon's full glow in silver bring,
Enchanting visions fade to mist...
The forest sighs in echos ring.
The painting is mixed media on 12 x 16 canvas in mostly acrylic. I built the layers with decorative papers, antique book pages and vintage maps. Below her I've included the poem I wrote that inspired this work...
I've been spending allot of time out of doors and wanted to share a bit of my art it inspired. I hope you've enjoyed the little bit of fantasy I've brought to this blog post.
Additionally this post is dedicated to all the huge old trees that gave their lives up this week at the whim of misguided townsfolk and changed our beautiful vistas forever...from glorious green to desolate bleakness.
In response to such nonsense, I've just purchased 9 new trees and will be transplanting 5 smaller ones ready for life in the solid earth. My mom also gave me a tiny giant redwood volunteer from the huge one in her yard. It will need another season of life in a pot and in the spring it will be ready to soar! How's that for a one, two punch?!
Forever in art,
