A few years have gone by. During that time I was always drawing and painting. I gave many paintings away, also sold a few. By now my paintings were well over R100 per piece. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of them all. Wish I had. While I was working in Potchefstroom as a meteorologist, I only had weekends to paint. This forest scene was done on one of those weekends.
Even though some might think that it is a very "dark" scene, depicting some dark or evil, I do not look at it that way. I rather look at it as saying that in the middle of this dark and lonely forest, there still is light and peace. And I believe that in the middle of our deepest troubles, if we look at the whole, we will see light and we will find peace.
I still have this painting in my house and it is available if you want to buy it. Although it is framed, I will not include the frame in the price.
