Swamp Forest Light

Image
 Swamp Forest Light  acrylic painting Swamps are intense with mystery, full of all types of different trees, and deep dense waterways. They are some of the most important ecosystems in the world and should be respected. I love the various mysteries in the swamps, their is a beauty that can be found no where else.   The swamps I paint are from my mind, what I see in the moment, and paint. This one had an unusual light shining at the waters edge, casting a blue glow onto the densely populated trees.

Dark hills  beneath sunlight poem Clouds float by a breath taking yellow sunrise. The dark hills beneath have sunlight kisses on the hill tops. Opportunities to discover and new ground to cover.

Taking steps  One at a time Waiting patiently Until the future arrives Brighter days ahead for this yellow sunrise.

The green hues below represent the forest, all of its amazing colors, the dark branches represent motion and growth, as well as separate entities from the leaves and grasslands. This piece was created to inspire hope and direction.

As they say movement is life,  but don't forget where your roots b
