Game Trail.

I stopped in to visit this metro park (Glacier Ridge in Dublin Ohio) on my way home from the city to take pictures of the forest blanketed in snow. Looking at this reminds me of how very quiet it was that day. The forest is one of my favorite places for inspiration. I wonder if its because it reminds me of a sense of exploration I had as a child. Getting to go into the forest was always an adventure. It still is. This painting is soft pastel on top of hardwood that has been stained, sealed with polyurethane, and then coated with a sanded pastel medium. I let the natural woodgrain show through to honor the wonderful qualities of nature’s design.
