I finished “Devil’s Club” my latest painting last night. Devil’s Club is kind of a nasty prickly plant that grows in the damp, dark, cedar forests of BC. It spreads it’s leaves out flat to catch what little light streaks down through the cedar canopy. It was these light green highlighted leaves in the dark forest that attracted me to the image. This painting is based on a photo I took at the Ancient Forest Prov. Park west of McBride.
I began the painting in September and it took me 162 hours to complete. It is done using acrylic’s on canvas. The painting is 30” x 30” (76cm x 76cm)
