Gentle Giants

My painting surely reflects the environment in which I live… added to this is the love that I have for all trees, shrubs, creepy crawlers, moss, and everything in between and beyond. So let me introduce to you the majestic Eastern Pine and its accolade. These are gentle giants as they hover above our heads and protect us from downpours, high winds, and they are home to all of the critters and mammals. In the spring their sugary sap starts running, their cones scent the entrance to the house and its scented needles cushion the forest floor.

Mes peintures reflètent bien mon environnement dans lequel je vie… et que j’aime tellement. Laissez-moi vous introduire au Pin de l’est, majestueux en soi. Il nous protège des grands vents, filtre la neige qui tombe toute en douceur, en été nous laisse son arôme intense et ses glands collants et tapisse le sol avec ses aiguilles de pin. En plus, les mammifères et les oiseaux de la forêt l’adopte, faisant leur nid dans les trous ou dans le creux de leurs branches. À chaque année on a couple d’hibous qui adopte un de nos pins.
