|Peace in the Forest|
I don't do a lot of watercolors...I find the complete loss of control terrifying, if you must know! I wanted a special feeling for this particular subject, however, so I braved the medium and it came out rather nice, I think. I find that my soul seems to come to rest when I am out in nature, and I really needed that feeling of serenity this week. Painting something in nature calms me, makes me feel more connected to the world, and a bit less lonely. This painting was done from a photo that I took while visiting the upper northwest of the U.S. Parts of the countryside are lush and green, and filled with pines and deer. I wouldn't mind living up that way...I was born under a wandering star!!!
