On Tuesday past I went for a walk in Francis King Park and drew this wonderful cedar stump. I went back today and did two more drawings, one of two spires of cedar scarred by the same fire and one of an ancient Douglas fir. The mosses and lichens were bright greens and soft turquoises with the recent rains and the spotted coralroot wild orchids are in bloom. There were hummingbirds, junco's, ravens and I startled one robin who had her nest in the hollow of a huge Douglas fir tree. Wonderful to sit smell the air. j
Welcome to "Wild Anticipation". I hope this site will be a gathering place for organizations and individuals who celebrate the preservation and restoration of wild places. I have been privileged to wander and draw and paint in those places and this exhibition is to show you a small part of the legacy of your hard work.
With gratitude. Joanne
