"And into the forest I go, to lose mind and find my soul."-John Muir. I painted this piece after a day long watercolor workshop. I came home and instantly began practicing some of the new techniques I had learned. This painting started as a reference from a sunset photo, but it seemed as though the painting wanted to be something else. I sat and listened and before I knew it, there was a forest. Trees and mountains have always been one of my favorite meditative places.
