Forest Giants  Detail

West Coast Canada is known for its “Forest Giants”. In my childhood I ran wild for the month of July on Gambier Island. Although the trees there weren’t the giants of Cathedral Grove, they gave me the ongoing love of the forest. This particular scene was inspired by a note card painted by Linda Frimer titled “Sanctuary”. It is hand painted cotton, appliqué, confetti technique and thread painting. I hope you will enjoy one little snapshot of Canada!
