Day 25: 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
"Eyes of the Forest" NFS
Image: 15" x 11" Watercolor
This painting started out as just a tree painting. Then, I just had to add a bird. My intention is to have the viewer aware of how we need to preserve our world by recycling, and conserving energy as much as we can. Our forests are beautiful and I want them around for generations to come. I intentionally made the bird illusionary, as if it were a ghostly being, watching over its habitat. That's why I named it "Eyes of the Forest". I worked on this painting all day today, and may enter this painting into an upcoming national show, so I'm not selling it yet. If interested, you can private message me.
