I just love it when the air turns crisp and the leaves change colour. To look up at a great Maple and know that the abundance of yellow and orange and red is fleeting just makes me appreciate it all the more. Autumn is a time to harvest all that we’ve worked so hard to reap. It is a time to be grateful for the abundance of good people and opportunities we experienced throughout the year.
While this series depicts the West Coast landscape it also symbolizes my journey as an artist – the leap of faith to quit working to become a full time artist and signing the lease of my first commercial art studio, the lessons I’ve learned while owning a business, the struggle and determination to keep it alive, and the sense of pride I feel when I’ve accomplished something. In all this, I am trusting that I am on the right path while searching for the right opportunities to come along. I will walk through the forest, rest my hand on the vast trunk of a favourite cedar, and whisper my thoughts, hoping for a break through – a sense of clarity as to what to do next. I plan, I improvise, I push through and am rewarded for my effort. It took four years to get to this place. Four years of witnessing the seasons change while staying true to my vision, protecting my investment, watching it grow.
