Finally, I've realized my last entry for Katie's book. This was inspired by my recent journey into the forest of the Central Cascade Mountains of Washington State. This composition came together from photos I took on our hikes. It was also encouraged by a long interest in nurse logs. The transmutation in an old growth forest is profound. It holds metaphors relating to our human existence. This is my last drawing for our wonderful moly_x_24 exchange. Once I receive my sketchbook from Masha, for me, the circle will be complete. What a gift to share this experience with you Katie, Rosie and Masha. Thank you, dear ones!!!!
