Life’s Path

I’ve attached three art prints I created using a watercolor technique of hiking trails. The first one was created in 2011 and I just refreshed it as I created the other two this past week.

I love the peace and serenity of hiking specifically in the Pacific Northwest. The dense forest and pine trees create a sense of being one with nature. Because the forest is so dense, I don’t venture off the path as I know in these woods, we are not alone and crossing paths with a bear or whatever doesn’t appeal to me.

Life is a Journey

On each of these prints, I did an overlay using a thought of mine as it relates to each of our journeys through life. We are each on our own path so to speak and it is our choice as to whether or not we stay on that path or choose to venture off knowingly or unknowingly.

Life’s Journey Down A Path Chosen For Us

I liken it to being a parent and trying to keep your kids on a path as we raise them. At some point their free will may take them off the chosen path, but we are always there to guide them back if they seek it. As each of us travels our own individual paths, He is always there to guide us back when we venture off the chosen path.

    Such a wonderful sentiment and perfect for these prints. I always loved Will Roger’s quote, “โ€œEven if you are on the right track, youโ€™ll get run over if you just sit there.โ€ We do need to keep moving along our path.

    I live in Vancouver, Canada, so I hear what you say about living in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle/Portland/Vancouver are all very similar: rainforest temperate climate with neverending sweeps of rain during the wet season and stultifying dryness during summer. I actually prefer the rain for its mood-enhancing qualities, however.

    Beautiful pictures and amazing quote! Itโ€™s so true, we always have a path before us and sometimes we stay on it and sometimes we wander off. But even if we wander He is always there to help guide us back. I also love how you mentioned parents and helping guide your children down the right path. Itโ€™s a true blessing to have parents that are always there like Him even when their children wander off, some arenโ€™t blessed to have that!

      Thanks Sue….the first one has been one of my most successful prints. That particular one is a hiking trail in the University of Washington grounds in Seattle. My best to you and your family! I know we are both enjoying “grandchildren”!
