Coastal Mountain Forest Triptych

Often found growing together in the Coastal Mountain forest of British Columbia, these three species were inspiration to capture the texture and light of my local forest.
The idea to frame each with their own type of wood came both as a natural idea but also because of materials at hand.

Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, and Western Red Cedar
Each has it’s own properties such as weight, grain, smell, and value.
It’s this author’s belief that lumber and forestry can be a sustainable industry if well maintained. Hands off old growth! Selective forestry needs to be rewarded and raw log exports minimized.

Each frame has been treated with LifeTime® Wood Treatment Non-Toxic Wood Stain. The result is a natural grain finish and each painting is adorned with a spot of forest lichen or moss.

Canvas measurements are approximately 9″x12″ (23cm x 30 cm)
With frame the hanging dimensions each measure 11 1/4″ x 14 1/4″ (28cm x 36cm)
