Enchanting Meadow: A whimsical Portrayal of Lassen's Mystical Beauty

Led Down a Path of Wonder
As the Symphony of Nature
Sings it's Solo Song
  The Wild Meadow
      Becomes the Palette
           And The Vision Comes to Life...
               A New World is Born from my soul

As I embarked on the enchanting journey to Paradise Meadow in Lassen Volcanic National Park, the crisp morning air whispered promises of nature's wonders. Each step through the meandering trails unveiled a canvas of beauty – fields adorned with wildflowers, cascading waterfalls that sang a melody of serenity, and towering trees that stood as ancient sentinels.

The sunlight filtered through the leaves, creating a dance of shadows and light, painting the forest floor with an ever-changing mosaic. The mountain, a remnant of a volcanic past, majestic and unyielding, stood as a silent guardian of this natural haven. Birds, their melodies harmonizing with the babbling brooks, flitted from branch to branch, adding a whimsical soundtrack to the symphony of nature.

Amidst this ethereal setting, inspiration ignited within me like a spark catching fire. I envisioned strokes of color and emotion, translating the essence of Paradise Meadow onto my canvas. The winding creek became fluid strokes, capturing the perpetual movement and grace of effortlessly flowing water. Trees emerged as stoic pillars, their bark and branches etched with the wisdom of time. The Golden Aspens created a tapestry of shapes and shadows, the mountain, with it's shattered peak reaching for the heavens, took form on my canvas as a tribute to nature's grandeur.

As I painted, the very spirit of the hike infused each brushstroke – a synthesis of the wind's whispers, the sparkling water, and the symphony of birds. My artwork became a reflection of the profound connection forged between my soul and the untamed beauty that unfolded with every step on that winding trail.

In the end, the painting stood as a testament to the magic of Paradise Meadow, a masterpiece born from the tempest of nature's wonders and the artist's heart. The serenity of the hike, the fields, flowing creek, trees, mountain, and birds had not only inspired my newest creation but had woven a tapestry of memories that would forever linger in the strokes of my brush and my soul.

"Field of Dreams" Original Lassen Volcanic National Park Painting 

I often get asked how I achieve such vibrant, rich colors with my art, and what kind of paint I use.  So here you go!  I LOVE Liquitex acrylic paints, they are my go to for all of my paintings.  And because I live in my van, and it's also my mobile studio, I don't have a lot of room to store large canvases, or stretched canvas, so I am primarily painting on Recycled Fine Art Bristol paper, it's amazing!
Here are links to where I purchase the paints and paper on Amazon
