Among the Oaks

I always get a feeling of gentleness and calm when
walking in a Garry oak meadow.
This painting depicts what was once a common part of
Victoria's ecosystem. In spring among the oaks are carpets of Camas Lily
and in some areas Shooting Stars. Those remnant
pieces of meadow that remain hold a special magic and their
spirit can still be felt when you walk there.
Oil on canvas 12 x 16.
Comments always welcomed.
"The best and most beautiful things in the
world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart."
(Helen Keller)

Beautiful, in the last couple of years I've been paying attention to the things you describe...srt of an awakening.

how pretty to see the grass among the trees like that instead of forest floor.
