In The Forest, oil on linen panel, 11"x14"

This spring I went into a wooded area and sketched and photographed some fallen trees. At one point I fell off a log into a deep stream and thought I had destroyed my new digital camera. But a week later I had a little Easter miracle when I turned the camera on after putting it in a Ziploc bag with some rice and it worked. If you ever drop something electronic in water don't turn it on, put it in a Ziploc bag with rice for about a week. The rice absorbs the moisture. I composed this scene from the reference material I gathered that day.
