The hand of God

I was walking in the woods afer a night of rain and the sunlight reached through the forest canopy like the hand of God, painting the lichens and mosses with a delicate golden glow. I tried making a painting from this image but it was just too much…..some things just can’t be improved upon.

Giant Trees

Old Growth Douglas Fir trees are some of the largest trees in the world. Their furrowed and wrinkled bark has inspired many of my watercolor paintings.

There are very few places where these giants have escaped commercial logging. The Elaho valley is a spectacular example.
