Forest Path--Original Landscape Oil Painting

The forests of the Olympic Peninsula are deep and rich. Hiking amongst the evergreens can provide a sense of wonder for those who meander amongst them. This 8x10 inch oil painting was inspired by one of my hikes in the Olympic National Forest. If you decide to visit, wear good shoes, take a jacket, and enjoy your visit.

I live in Virginia and love to hike and wander in the forests. This is a beautiful piece that resonates with me. Love the way you handled the light and highlights.
