Inspiration From The Forest
People have asked me why the name of my business is "Emerald Window"? In short, it's because I love the forest and I get much of my inspiration from it,even if it doesn't show in a particular piece. The forest rejuvenates me. I look at everything as if I was looking at it from some magical woods (through an Emerald Window!). I like to fantasize that I live in a hollow tree that magically expands to house proportions as I walk through the rustic door. I should have been a sylph.
Here are some pictures that capture a little of the magic I feel when I am deep in the green.
These pictures were taken at Silver Falls near Silverton, Oregon. This week-end my sweety and I are planning a picnic and picture-takng trip up to Belknap Hotsprings, where I worked, oh so long ago.
I feel some creativity coming on.
