3780 – Welcoming Woods

3780 –  Welcoming Woods

Acrylic on Canvas

20 x 16 inches


Welcoming Woods was commissioned by the children of a friend as a birthday gift for her. When asked what she would like in a painting, she told them she wanted Trees and Roots.

Inspired by a hike on Whiskey Rapids Trail in Algonquin Park, Ontario, I added the Raven flying down the path in the distance to guide the viewer into the forest.

The Raven brings with him the ability to bend time and space for the perfect moment at the right time. He signifies rebirth, renewal, reflection and healing. He helps the transitions and transformations move along smoothly by casting light into the darkness. (source: https://www.spiritanimal.info/raven-spirit-animal/)
