‘Snowy Cedar In Flight’

Oil on Canvas 9″ X 12″


A dark, snow-laden November day.
Low, heavy, clouds have settled in, bringing winter.
The forest depths are deepened by the greyness.

A day that invites flights of fancy ~ the cedar boughs and I take up the invitation . . . spread our wings and fly.

This, the first snow of the year, graces the forest; the dark day made beautiful by the bright eiderdown frosting.


These are Western Red Cedar trees.

Cedars are symbolic of cleansing and purification, and are considered to be entrances into sacred realms.
