Woodland--Original Oil Painting

Today's painting was inspired by a bright spot in the forest. This time of year, hiking in the woods in the Pacific Northwest is often a gloomy trek. Damp fog, rain, and eternal grayness abounds with only a small glimpse of color now and again. Walking around a bend and gathering a glimpse of color reminds me that spring will come again. This oil painting is 5x7 inches on a gessoed hardboard panel and was inspired by a little glimpse of woodland color. When it dries it may join some of my other small landscape paintings at Small Impressions Gallery.
