Wow, right? The feel of this painting is amazing. So statuesque. The height of these trees is amazing and the sunlight… Oh! The sunlight!!
Teresa Smith is the artist and it sounds like she lives in a magical location (read her bio below!) – I cannot imagine the amount of inspiration that comes from an area so beautiful!

Informed by a naturalist philosophy, Teresa’s art combines a richness of oil paint and contemplative practice. Growing up in rural Quebec instilled a sincere and intimate love of deep woods.
Years of riding horses through old growth forest of the west coast. Hikes with Irish Wolfhounds and immersion into the plant world as a Master Gardener inform her work. The philosophy of the intelligence of trees adds depth. Teresa paints the soul in nature.
Teresa graduated from Naropa University with a contemplative arts degree. She exhibits her largescale oil paintings in the US and Canada.
She lives on a little ferry served island with her horses, irish wolfhounds, and giant fir trees. The vista in front of her is Mount Baker and the Salish Sea.TERESA SMITH
