Spiral Design with nature studies from the forest, including a group of three owlet siblings

A Fine Balance

Oil Painting on Cradleboard 48” x 24” 2015

Woodhaven Regional Park is a unique treasure in Kelowna, inherited thanks to the people whose efforts contributed to its preservation. Their enthusiasm inspired me to learn about the history and spend time watching life in the quiet of the forest. There is a fragile balance between complex and simple, chaos and order, micro and macro. Wild survivors, like the tiny owlets born here this summer, need protected spaces for their homes.

This painting was created for a special project at the Kelowna Public Art Gallery.
