Into the Woods 15

"There is pleasure in the pathless woods"

A visit to my mother’s gravesite is a familiar place that offers many opportunities for serenity and joy in embracing the quiet solitude. On this day as I made my way to the exit I took a different route and suddenly found myself in an enchanted forest that bordered the cemetery. Standing atop the ridge the scene before me was breathtaking; an absolute spectacle of dramatic and austere beauty with a hint of haunting elegance. Drawn to this priceless discovery by the spirit of my mother, I was inspired to create images that convey the essence of her soul.
