Nature’s Cathedral

February 18, 2016 · Filed Under Travel Art · Comment 


“Nature’s Cathedral” is a 40 inch by 60 inch acrylic palette knife painting. While backpacking in Barcelona Spain, I was admiring Gaudi’s Cathedral, “The Sagrada Familia” ( and thought wouldn’t it be interesting to paint a British Columbian winter scene with the trees in the general shape of this cathedral. For me, nature has always been my cathedral, a place where I rejuvenate myself and connect with my spiritual side.

All the trees are Douglas Firs and the yellow trees are Cypress trees as they are common in Spain. The dots under the central red Douglas Fir symbolize people entering into Nature’s Cathedral to connect with their spirituality. When they leave, they are refreshed and feel a emotional connection with the energy of nature along with a greater understanding of the meaning of life:)

“The Woodland Waltz” is an 36 inch by 72 inch acrylic painting that reflects the masculine and feminine aspects of nature. The background is a metallic silver and this color along with the white of the birch trees provides a calming presence that is lovely to sit beside while enjoying a tea or reflecting over the activities of the day.
