New Painting

Walk through the Rainforest, 36x36", acrylic

I wanted to paint something loose and strong. I started this one by just making some gestural marks with a paper towel dipped in paint. I felt that it gave the painting a more energetic start that I really enjoyed. I wanted to maintain that energy throughout. I tried not to refine everything too much. When I look at nature I like the overgrown rugged nature of it. We have walked these boardwalk trails through the rainforest around Tofino for many years. Lots of climbing stairs and then finally going down toward the beach. It is such a magical place.


  1. Great painting! I love the softness of the trees.

  2. Thanks Lori for taking the time to look at my blog.

  3. I have walked those trails as well, and I love the warmth of the wood in the boardwalk in your painting. Astonishing!


Please leave a comment I appreciate the feedback.
