The Girl in the Woods

Watercolor & acrylic. 15 x 10.5 in. 


A portrait of my childhood in the New Hampshire woods.  I roamed those woods in every season of the year. I always felt that there was something magical waiting over the next hill, or beyond the next tree.

"Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun."

-J.R.R. Tolkien
