Deep Forest Colorway
Deep Forest – In the forest, underneath the trees and in the thickets, are the secret places where creatures hide and plant growth and death proceed slowly. These places are dark and green and rich. As I walk quietly through the woods, I find myself caught up in the mystery of these deep dark places.
Beargrass – A dramatic plant in the Lily Family that blooms in the spring in the forest understory. The flowering stems grow waist-high and in some years, the forest is thick with these flowers – a stunning sight. These flowers were photographed near Lolo Peak outside of Lolo, MT.
Weathered Wood Colorway
Weathered Wood – In our area, old pine trees weather to a lovely silver-gray with golden tan highlights. The inspiration for this colorway is an old white-bark pine tree that died standing and is now home to woodpeckers and other hole-nesting creatures. My Weathered Wood Colorway is a warm neutral that works well by itself and in combination with other colors.
Spring Sapling - We had an early spring here in western Montana, and the long days and bright sunshine begged me to head out to the woods. The trees and saplings were bursting with new growth. Even the larches, deciduous conifers, were leafing out. I tried to capture the look of cheerful promise in this colorway. I hope it makes you smile.
