Wilderness – Kaleidoscope Woods

After being in the Grand Canyons over the holidays and seeing the majesty of color in those wild canyons, I couldn’t help but use an image of a painting, I made some time ago  of the wilderness (“Kaleidoscope Woods”).

This is how I see the wilderness, a riot of color!

Ahhh…I can’t imagine life without color or the wilderness, it provides balance.

I’m ready for the adventure of “wilderness” this year, I think that translates into adventure. Let’s live life to the fullest!

  1. Lovely! This is so free– do you ever feel like sometimes you are just watching a painting “happen” ? This looks that way. Wonderful colors!

  2. Lovely colors! And I agree with Krista, the trees seem so free. Even though all the flowers make me think of a park. A lovely landscape :-)

  7. This is a piece I’d think I’d see in a museum..just so beautiful, Indigene! Really, it takes me right to the south of France. And yes, I think your post for IF has an error, so if you’d like to repost, that’d be cool so that everyone can see this beautiful illustration. Happy new year to you, Indigene!

  34. Oh Indigene girl…this is breathtaking!!!
    I’ve always been drawn to other artist’s interpretations of ‘wooded’ paintings in any season.

    ooooh, bravo!!!!
