Here’s what the artist had to say about this artwork:
After doing so many recognizable landmarks, I wanted to go back to a general forest scene. This image inspired me with the bright, yellow sunlight casting such dark shadows across the foreground. That contrast of light and dark made this piece somewhat challenging, but I enjoyed playing with the purples in the reflected light. Sara says I should have named this piece “Arrival” because she thinks the light looks like a UFO landing, but I’ll let the viewer decide what this “Light in the Forest” may be!
