Secrets of the Muskeg by Angela Fehr

The northern Canadian swamp is absolutely one of my favourite places to be in fall. The moss is eighteen inches thick, dripping with low hanging cranberries and ablaze with color and the fascinating shapes formed by lichens and bleached weathered deadfalls.

This painting is one of a series of three entitled "Secrets of the Muskeg". I've seen many artists who paint broad, wide-angle landscapes but these small, cross-section landscape "macros" - I don't know anyone else who does it.

Great work Angela. Click on Angela's name on right side panel of artists to be taken to her site.
