OK, this Forest Corners project that I began on Thursday is finished! I got a little carried away…but I think I made my point. I have spent a lot of time in the forest, and this abstract composition is my attempt to capture all of the elements in a unique presentation.
I love trees. But like many other creatures, I prefer the margins of the forest where it touches meadow, water, and sky. I decided to add a few beastly inhabitants to this ecosystem, because after all, just because we often don’t notice them, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
When I am on the road, and driving through the lush forested mountains of the northern California coast, I often try to imagine all of the creatures that are under that amazing forest canopy that blankets the mountains. It’s easy to forget about what is out of sight!
