|"Summer Solstice" by Amy Giacomelli.|
In this post I wanted to pay homage to beautiful tree art and the Summer Solstice, and Amy Giacomelli's far out tree painting does the trick. I am a sucker for the sacred spiral - it reminds me of tree rings.
What a glorious time of year this is in the northern hemisphere. The sun is at its zenith in the north and the days are long and warm. Deciduous trees are all leafed out, and the conifers are also growing rapidly.
Now is a great time to see the coastal forest in all its splendour, and perhaps do some en plein air painting while you are there.
Like Amy's art, our original forests are magical. Whether you are painting or not, getting out in the open air and seeing the big trees is guaranteed to please the soul.
Happy summer. Hoping you have many great forest adventures this season.
