This painting was inspired during a walk towards a ridge in Alberta's foothills. The willows were sparkling and I loved the quality of light as the skies darkened and rain clouds gathered. I have painted a number of paintings depicting paths as I feel they can be a reminder to walk in hope, to keep moving forward and enjoy the journey. I wanted to offer a visual and curative rest while you discover and enjoy nature's more subtle, quiet and sustaining beauty.
The incline of this path suggests it will take a little effort to reach the top and see the view that awaits. While the future beckons, be present and enjoy the getting there!
