Hi Everyone,

Today, a walk in the forest!

The idea of wandering off into the woods on some great adventure with a hint of danger, brings me back to the world of childhood memories. I grew up in an area where there were plenty of places to head out an explore, a paradise for a group of young lads!

We would take off in the morning with sandwiches and juice into the countryside around the town. I remember a gang of us walking for hours trying to find a crow’s nest between the horns of a cow of which we had heard about…. innocent times!

I hope you like the painting, it was created using the  Bob Ross wet-on-wet technique.

    Love this! and still love a walk in the woods when I can get away. The light in your art perfectly captures the feel of a dark, moonlit, slightly creepy walk in the evening woods. Thank you for sharing this with us!

    Love the picture and the memory. I was raised in the city. No woods. But once a year, about this time my parents would take us camping for three weeks. I still have so many great memories about my brothers and I exploring. Even still, we didn’t have the freedom you speak of, We had to stay within yelling distance. We would go to the nightly campfire talks where we were taught about the dangers and beauties of the forest. Rattlesnakes, poison oak, Hell’s Angels were some of the dangers that made real exploration SCARY. Your picture make me think of wolves. Do I hear a howl?
