Cortes continued...Tour of the Childrens Forest
I was taken on a walking tour through the Children's Forest, a piece of land that the Cortes Island Trust is working on purchasing from Island Timberlands. It was so beautiful and I would highly recommend the tour. I have grown up around forests but I was still "blown away" by the peaceful beauty in this particular area. I just hope that they are able to raise the funds to keep this part of the forest in its natural state. I did not paint this in the forest, because I was walking with others, but worked from the photographs and the images within my mind's eye as soon as I returned from the walk. I have painted a larger 12x36 version of this piece recently.
