Paths and Portals


Notes From My Tree Journal

I've always enjoyed portals or windows in the landscape.  It's a favorite theme. I always love the mystery of what may be on the other side. Fair Oaks in Evinston has many natural portals scattered through the fields and woods. That is one of many reasons I love painting there so much. Trees often grow together creating natural paths and portals. It's like they are lined up beconing to me to walk through. Trees are living beings. Their roots grow deep, anchoring the land, preventing erosion and harboring many other creatures. They have much to tell us if we stop to listen and spend time with them.
