Inspiration for the painting, Forest Glow at Treehouse Point, WA

One night at yoga class at Treehouse Point, I watched the sun set behind the tall evergreen trees.  As the sun lowered in the sky the forest began to glow a golden, orange color and I felt the image of this painting come into my mind’s eye.   Painting for me is a personal expression of my connection with Nature. It is about holding on to a fleeting moment in time and making that the main focus or idea of my painting.  Here is the painting, Forest Glow.

Animal Planet Blog: Behind the Scenes Treehouse Rehab

I hope you got a chance to see my treehouse on the Treehouse Masters TV show this month.  Pete Nelson, the Treehouse Master, did an excellent job giving my old painting studio a new look.   If you’re like me, you want to know all the details about how a project comes together.  The Animal Planet blogger and designer extraordinaire, Tory Jones, has provided all the info on how she updated our treehouse in the link below.  She included information on the lighting, blinds, paint, bedding and much more.  I enjoyed working with Tory because she’s amazingly talented and creative. She specializes in designing spaces, sourcing materials and installation  – all in a very limited amount of time!  Go Tory!

This is one of the paintings that was featured on the show.  My good friend, Sherry, sat for this portrait.  She’s from Texas.
