Being in a forest is probably one of my favorite activity in life. Simply observing the trees and walking in the wood provides me a lot of pleasure and inspiration for my paintings.
I have a passion and respect for those beautiful and amazing living beings.
Besides the beautiful energy they provide to us humans, I find it so interesting to look at them with a closer eye, the bark, the leaves, the fungi and basically everything because it is simply a work of art. I love Art galleries, but the Art nature offers is the essence of everything. All artists try to transmit what they feel and see when in nature.
Photographing and journaling about my travels in nature is part of my Art process.
Simply by looking at this photo of the fungi and humus of the forest, it is magical and full of colors. Different sizes and forms.
So before I go on a exploring journey, I like to take note of the gardens, parks, but especially check if there are old forests. So I am sure not to miss it. I have traveled so far into the old forests in West Canada, USA and Europe.
Do you have a favorite forest? If yes, don’t hesitate to share it with me in the comments.
