The woods make me feel utterly peaceful and at home :) I was born in the mountains, so perhaps that is my bond with it. I remember when I went into labor with Caitlin, I had brought music from the Nature Company (remember that store) of babbling brooks and birds chirping in the meadows. A peaceful calm comes over me when I hear those sounds. The other is the wind blowing tall pine trees. I truly wish I could be in your woods right now.
Good for you to go out there and just start!
Those flowers are so beautiful, and I love those pink squirt things :)

Oh Carolina! I love that you let go of the literal expectations of "forest" and painted the abstraction. So much of what we fear is tied up in our literal expectations of life. Letting go of them and venturing into the world with feeling and emotion is the beginning of great things.


Love it! The woods are my home, I grewp up playing in the woods. So glad you witnessed the miracle of the flowers and shared with us. Nature is a such a magical thing. It has been very cold and rainy here and although everything is a bit late this year, the spring is still happening which I find amazing. How do the little yellow poppy flowers in our front yard know it is time to come out when it is 50 °F?


I am so happy you are finding magic!! Your painting is lovely, the little daubs of leaves or blossoms are so luminous. I was able to take a quick neighborhood walk this morning and was inspired by all the beautiful blooms. Now I have the magic of your painting to inspire me as well.

I have been combatting my overscheduledness (how is that for a word?)by committing to one half hour a day to art (at least). Even if I don't feel like it. It's not much but I know it will take me somewhere!


Lovely, lovely,lovely xxx

Love this, I can see you in the woods painting, Would love to join you. Here by the sea we are miles from the woods, but nature is clearly as important to you as to me and I love the painting you did.
