There is a mountain biking trail in Squamish, BC called Shades of Green. Just before you start climbing you happen on this area of bright, lime green moss that the sun reaches in the early morning. This painting is inspired by the light shining through the trees on this spot. I happened on this view while mountain biking, I snapped a photo and then painted the view back in my studio.
This painting is part of the 'Heading to the Trails' collection released in February 2022.
'Heading to the Trails' collection is inspired by the days getting longer and spending more time outdoors in nature. I hope these paintings bring you feelings of adventure, inspiring you to get outside.
This painting is acrylic paint on canvas. The canvas is gallery wrapped (1.5" thick) and I continue the painting around the edges (as shown in the photo). It can be hung on a wall with or without a frame. The painting is signed in paint on the front "JHastie" and signed and dated on the back. The painting comes with hanging wire and hardware. I varnish with gloss varnish.
