Forest Keepsake

Forest Keepsake - Original Painting

Wouldn't it be nice if we could take a little bit of forest and save and preserve it in a jar for the future?

I just completed this painting last night. I got the idea for it when I was on vacation. I love terrariums, and so the idea came to include the little tree from my La Petite Forest series. It especially relevant to the deforestation issues - if we were able to save little pieces of those forests before they were destroyed....although the ultimate goal would be to prevent it in general. The original is available in shop.

For those interested in prints, they are currently available in the Artfire and Supermarket shops. My Etsy shop will feature the print once the original is sold :)
