Inspiration from the Forest


The Muskoka Arts & Crafts 38th Annual Spring Members’ Show takes place March 27-29. 2015 at the Bracebridge Sportsplex. Each member can enter 3 pieces of art.  I’ve chosen, Puppy Love – The Only Love That Come Between Us and The Red Canoe as two of them.

My third is a creation painted for the Muskoka Conservancy’s theme – Muskoka Woodlands. Having hiked and photographed the beautiful paths around Bracebridge, I decided to paint a subject many never notice.

But before this transition occurs, they create magical structures that stir my imagination. I visualize a kingdom of elfin creatures living within these moss-covered towers of greying wood.  Here are photos of just three of them. Each architectural wonder is unique which adds to their mystery.

With these images serving as my inspiration,  I painted, Forest in Transition – my third entry into the spring art show.  Feedback is always welcome!
