“Where The Cedars Grow”

Deep shadows beneath a grove of Cedar trees can create a safe harbor, and a place of quiet solitude. Their twisted trunks support evergreen branches forming a dark canopy. It’s a welcoming place of safety for the deer throughout the winter, and a haven for tiny birds. In the spring, the saturated ground beneath them is filled with moss and other wildflowers that flourish in the wetlands.

When I go for my daily walk, I pass by a grove of Cedars and often reflect on how long they may have been growing, the history they may have seen, and the beautiful oasis they create there. I know, at one point these particular cedars started growing when the land was a farm field. Now, they provide shelter for the animals that live here, and a source of quiet contemplation for me.

Stepping beneath their shadows gives me a sense of comfort and peaceful solace. I love watching the sun filter through the branches to the moss below, and listening to the birds above me. It’s that feeling of warmth in the shadows that I wanted to capture within my latest painting.
