This painting is inspired from one of my most painted locations on Mount Seymour - just off the entrance to Berkley.
The morning sun is coming through the lichen covered branches and highlighting the mossy forest floor. It is was a glorious moment in the forest away from my desk. As I settle into being a full time painter my hikes often start at this spot. If the weather report is good for the day, I may put off desk work to enjoy the forest first; hence the title Out Of Office.
This painting is part of the 'Time to Explore' collection released in June 2022.
Time to Explore collection is a reminder to you to make time to explore nature. More than making just enough time to park at the trail head, start your Strava app and race through a planned route. But time to spend a moment exploring, looking, deviating from the route and taking it in.
"Our encounters with nature can be poignant because they remind us that nature is something we are always meaning to get more interested in, but rarely get around to attending to." ~ Alain de Botton in the book Art as Therapy
