This small painting (23.5 x 30 cm/9.3 x 11.8 in.), part of my Forest Series, was the first I made during my time in De Haan during the Spring of 2020. It is based on the daily walks I took in the forest-dune landscape of the Belgian coastal town. While making this painting I was focused on the curved organic shapes of the trees and the bright light of a sunny spring day. When I look at the painting now, I see this optimism but also the emptiness of the path and the shadows on the forest floor which remind me of the quiet of this time.

A certificate of authenticity (COA) is included with the purchase of this painting.

Laura has worked in academia as a post-doctoral researcher and as an art consultant, gallery assistant, and researcher including in internationally renowned art institutions in Europe and Canada.

Peaceful, joyful, strong, colourful, dream-like, and haunting are some of the ways in which Laura’s paintings have been described to her. Using acrylic on canvas, Laura paints colourful landscape scenes of her home country of Canada and her new home country of Belgium with the aim of sharing the joy that she experiences in the practice and appreciation of art. Complementary to her painting practice, Laura writes about her painting process and inspiration in her biweekly blog, available on her website.
