Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #48 print

Patches of snow-covered forest floor glow in the morning sunlight, surrounded by ferns and trees in beautiful Rainier, Oregon.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #49 print

The morning sun sparkles like a faceted gem through a canopy silhouettes created by moss-covered tree branches. Refracted by the forest canopy, the light creates a subdued rainbow within the dark Oregon forest.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #50 print

The morning sun shining through the forest creates spectacular lighting effects. Lens flare  and light orbs floating in the air with sun rays shining visibly through the trees produce an ethereal glow in the Rainier, Oregon woods.

Oakridge Reservoir #3

Watercolor on Fabriano Uno 300 lb Soft Press 100% cotton paper, 7 1/2″x 11″, 2001. Intellectual property of Dawna Morton. All rights reserved. Do not copy.

Sunrise over Oakridge Reservoir, on a tranquil Oregon morning. Smooth as glass, the water mirrors calm reflections of driftwood and a fishing boat. Peace and solitude as the day breaks over the cool blue mountains.

now also available on fineartamerica.com and on Redbubble.

This is one of a series of 4 watercolor paintings I did of  Oakridge Reservoir quite a number of years ago. We went camping in Oakridge during august one year for vacation, and while we were there  I took some lovely reference photos of the reservoir early in the morning. It’s a really lovely  place, not far from Springfield and Eugene, Oregon–it’s very family friendly with lots of outdoor recreational activities.

Painted on a very smooth sample of Fabriano Uno 300 lb Soft Press 100% cotton paper, this early morning scene inspires reflection and peacefulness as well as a sense of the majesty and grandeur of nature and God’s creations.  The waters of the reservoir are smooth as glass as they reflect the logs and driftwood within the reflections of the shadowy mountains. An evergreen branch seems to point past the small fishing boat moored alone at the dock towards the  pale yellow dawn light filling the sky and creeping across the mountains while three pale grey clouds hover in the distance.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #6 print

Ivy and moss covered evergreen trees lean to and fro, forming the shape of an N and W, in the steep sloping hills in the woods of Rainier Oregon as the melting snow drips from the trees, sparkling in the morning sun rays as it falls toward the bright white snow covered forest floor below.

Forest Sun Rays in the Snow #24 print

A ray of sunlight shines down through the snow covered forest, creating a bright icy lacework of tree branches. Four trees surround a small clearing in the woods like a bier, as logs blanketed in snow on the sloping forest floor resemble a skeleton, below icy tree limbs forming a ghostly apparition of a horses face like a trusty steed standing guard.

On this steep, snow covered, forested slope in Rainier, Oregon an interesting tree stump looks like something out of a fantasy novel siting surrounded by ferns and basking in the morning sunlight. Reminiscent of a troll, ogre or other mythological woodland creature turned to stone, it sits as if guarding the forest below.

forest

Like something out of a fantasy novel, this tree stump resembles a mythological woodland creature such as a troll, ogre, or gnome guarding the forest. branches dangle overhead shining in the sun like a chandelier from a castle ceiling. Ferns cascade downward illuminated by the winter sun as the snow casts a light carpet across the forest floor.

imagination flowing print

Melting snow floods a forested trail, rippling and glistening in the sun as it flows down the foliage strewn path toward fox creek. Interesting patterns of light and shadow, along with varying leaf colors and shapes mix and blend, stirring the imagination. In the eye of the beholder, and with layers of meaning there are unexplored possibilities, untold stories and images of hidden faces, inviting the viewer to return again and again to focus and ponder what new things they can see.

imagination flowing #2 print

Almost like a game of I spy, this macro photo of water from melting snow flowing over a forested trail sparks the imagination with hidden pictures. As the sun glistens and sparkles in the reflections in the water moving over the golden bronze forest detritus, layers of interesting patterns and shapes appear. I spy a star, a heart, a downturned face with a “feather” in his cap, an eagle or falcon in it’s nest, a humming bird, and the figure of a man on a boat to name a few. Each time I look at this shot I see something new hiding in the wet leaves.
