    Description

    After a long hike through a wooded area, exhaustion hits and you are ready for a rest. In your mind’s eye, you visualize a clearing with a bench to rest your weary body and refresh your thirsty soul.

    Fatigue also can come calling in an ordinary day at the desk – without much physical exertion.  Daily life has become increasingly harried and demanding. 

    Why not pause and take a mental, emotional, and spiritual break?  Rest under imagined blossoms and contemplate something that is going on outside in your life, and something that is going on inside you as a result.  Your next good steps will gently come to you.

    The colors, light and composition are yummy

    Excellent portrait reflecting the mood of the model

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.
