Wildwood Series

 My walks through the 100 acre wood are more imaginative since reading Wildwood by Colin Meloy. Could it be that the kinglets flying along with me have a story to tell?

These three paintings are my artistic interpretation of Wildwood:

"Part of the unique and successful structure of Wildwood comes from Colin Meloy's ability to bring these fantastical elements together with the recognizable foundation of Portland, Oregon and its wild—but very real—Forest Park. This highly creative story and firmly grounded landscape, combined with a familiar culture of bureaucratic red tape and politics-as-usual, creates a remarkable debut, one that speaks to—and about—our present state of affairs, as well as our wildest imaginations."  (Reviewed by Tamara Smith).
Go wander through your 100 acre wood!
