Twilight Woods

I follow the winding path not knowing where I'll end up.  The trees rustle in the breeze stirring up the aromas of the forest.  A freshness one always has to remind themselves of in civilization.  The light refracts in strange ways at this time.  It's when the surreal becomes the real.  

This painting would look best in a space that is orange, purple, yellow, green, blue, beige, or wood.

Yellow Birch Tree

Yellow Birch Tree, 2015

A white birch tree in a field of yellow. Birch trees have always been a meditative source for me. Growing up, there was one outside my window that I would look at while daydreaming. And, when I needed to get away from the world I went to a grove of Birch trees to find refuge. I’ve always found the unique and nearly useless white tree interesting.

This painting would look best somewhere that needs a splash of color like a beige or light pastel foyer or small wall space.

I have stayed here for several days.  Alone in the wilderness with only the things I can carry in my backpack.  I've been rationing my food and water to extend my time here.  There's an intensity to the evening sun that is counter-balanced by the darkness of the soil.  A delicate harmony to everything.

This piece would work in a space that is deep red, burnt orange, yellow, green, blue, or a neutral beige

Our feet are sore after hiking along Enfield Creek to see Lucifer Falls.  It's a rocky gorge full of cliffs, stairs, and waterfalls.  There's an explosion of color that matches the roar of the water.  At the end of the rim trail is the cabin.  A perfect place to get away from the world.

Roman Bridge Outside of Ferreirós do Dão, Portugal

Roman Bridge Outside of Ferreirós do Dão, Portugal, 2015
Acrylic of canvas board

Hiking along the Rio Dão, we come to the Ponte Romana.  An old Roman bridge sturdily connecting the small town of Ferreirós do Dão to the rest of the world.  We climb down to the river to rest our feet in the refreshing water.  The clear water runs over rocks that seem to support the world.  A place to have peace of mind.
