West Coast Canada is known for its “Forest Giants”. In my childhood I ran wild for the month of July on Gambier Island. Although the trees there werenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the giants of Cathedral Grove, they gave me the ongoing love of the forest. This particular scene was inspired by a note card painted by Linda Frimer titled “Sanctuary”. It is hand painted cotton, appliquÃƒÂ©, confetti technique and thread painting. I hope you will enjoy one little snapshot of Canada!
