“They are beautiful in their peace, they are wise in their silence. They will stand after we are dust. They teach us, and we tend them.” ~ Galeain MacDunelmor
Forest painting in-progress by Laura Leeder, 2018
It was inevitable that I would at some point attempt to capture a snapshot "in paint" of the landscape that surrounds me here in the beautiful Creston Valley and Kootenay Lake area .
For the past 4 years my husband and I have been retreating to our summer vacation spot nestled in the forest along the shore of Kootenay Lake. It is a privilege and an experience unlike any other.
We start spending time here as early as April and stay until late fall.
As spring is fast approaching and with April just around the corner, we'll soon be heading to the lake to open up our site. I can't help but think of our retreat and what new lessons and experiences it will present to us this year.
For now I will continue working on this painting. Please check back next week to see where my exploration has taken me.
Creatively Yours, Artist Laura Leeder
