Most of my classes ended at the beginning of December so I had the whole month to spend painting in my studio. It was a much needed break because I was anxious to work on the above painting.
We live in a beautiful part of Vancouver, right next to the Pacific Spirit Park. This park is a rainforest with all sorts of trails to explore. I will often take the dog and my camera and spend a morning exploring. At first I felt overwhelmed by the trees and the rain. Especially since I moved from the edge of Vancouver Island where the sun is more present and the tall trees were further inland. But I have come to love these trees and have found peace and solace among them. The grey and the rain don't seem to bother me as much anymore when I can see the beauty that comes from it.
