Trail: Acrylic on canvas. A wooden boardwalk leads into a cedar forest, and a black raven sitting on a wooden arrow, leading the way.

Trail 2014

This painting was inspired by boardwalks in the Cumberland Forest and features a trail lined by skunk cabbage, or as I like to call it, “swamp lantern”.  I copied the arrow from a sign on Meares Island which is simply inscribed “Big Trees”.  Instead of putting lettering on the arrow in this painting, I perched a raven on top, a bird that in First Nations mythology sometimes appears as a guide to the unknown.  This piece is an invitation for the viewer to explore the trail and to feel comforted that the path is lit up.
