Another one of my daughter, Rhiannon, lol! I just can’t stop painting my kids:)  
We went for a walk in Saloompt Forest Trails the other day. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the sun was filtering down through the gorgeous, old growth cedar trees.  It is really beautiful there, but it got quite messed up from the flood in September. A lot of debris everywhere. My husband snapped the photo for this and I was immediately taken by it. Her expression is mysterious, like the forest, and the dappled sun on snow was so eye-catching. I just had to paint it! Finally…I painted this one loose enough! YAY! I did it, I did it…Hooray! I love this painting, what can I say!
It looks way better in real life, and of course better bigger…click on the image for a larger view.
