The Violet Wood by JenniferWeiler The Violet Wood by JenniferWeiler
Well, I got tired of not being able to do anything while I was sick last week so I went to the basement on Friday and started painting just for the heck of it lol. I had a canvas that for whatever reason, I had painted yellow a few months back and it turned into... this. Haha black bears and hidden sections of forests are my stress relief I suppose. <3

As a kid, I used to sneak off into the woods past the fence of the yard where I wasn't allowed and I would follow a little stream down to a hidden pond. I would sit there for hours looking for all kinds of wildlife but being in the middle of the city, there wasn't much and certainly never any bears. Now here in Vermont, black bears do come up to the pond and it is definitely beautiful to watch them dance among the weeping cherry trees in the Spring to fish up the trout in the pond.

Medium: Oil on Canvas
Size: 18" x 24"
Original is available for purchase: www.etsy.com/listing/100309622…

Thanks for viewing! <3

looks beautiful. i envy you for being able to watch bears. in germany, sadly, there are no bears living in the forests. humans killed them all long ago.

Haha there certainly is! Yesterday though, I passed two wild turkeys hanging out on the side of the road which is a normal thing here but one of them was the size of my dog.... x-x

He's German Shepard and Chow mix and this turkey was as tall and long as he is hahaha! The other turkey it was with was normal wild turkey size which is a bit lankier than farm raised turkey. I've never seen a Godzilla wild turkey before SHEESH! XDD

You're welcome! :glomp:

I don't think I've ever seen a turkey ever =P except the ones I eat XD lol oh that's kind of sad now that I think about it.

Turkeys can get thaaat big? Geez.. If that's so, I would be too afraid to go near it. Although I can never stop laughing when I hear one gobble.

Aww your dog sounds cute ^^ I love German Shepherds and Chow. Although I think my favorite might either be a Golden Retriever or Daschund. I've come across Great Danes before. They were more like horses @_@;; the way they galloped after me and breathed so low.

Lol really?! A flock of wild turkeys in person is a really neat sight. (:

I didn't think they could but this one apparently this one cracks out on steroids! Haha I know, I saw a guy chasing a wild turkey once back in Tennessee up in the Smokey's and then a few minutes later, the turkey turned and started chasing him and it was like 1/3 this Godzilla turkey's size so I don't think I'd mess with it either. XD

He's a precious little button! I love Chows, Keeshonds, Burmese Mountain Dogs, and Corgis lol. Goldens and Daschunds are precious! <3
HAHA! Great Danes ARE like horses! They're so sweet though. XDD

hahah XD people getting chased or beat up by animals smaller or closer to their size is pretty funny, given the situation of course. Like this for example -->> [link]

OMG they truly are horses :omg: I'm sure they're sweet, but I was frightened out of my wits when they came charging. And the lady who was taking them out for a walk is a sweet older little woman. With a cute accent she said, "Oh do please excuse them" lol

Your childhood is one that was taken from me when we moved.
I never had properly ingrained memories of my magical home, and never shall.
I shall make do with your lovely depictions of yours instead.

I didn't have a "magical" or happy childhood as I had a very abusive biological father so sneaking out into the woods to sit at the pond or just hide away in a pile of leaves where he couldn't find me was where I made my own magic. I'm sorry to hear you don't recall memories of a younger time but luckily, you have the ability to make new ones, now. :hug: :heart:

Haha and that works too. XD <3

I feel as I should be the one who is sorry right now.
Though I could have never thought you had such a childhood, I do forget that those sort of things happen in the world. I am sorry it was like that. Do forgive my naivety.
yes that's what I am trying to do in my current life,
at least making my own happy things tha I can dwell on for good times sake.

It's quite alright! It's not something I dwell on so most people don't know about it as I prefer to focus on the current moment and find happiness in each one. :hug:

That's good! It's a positive thing to do and makes life more enjoyable when things get tough. <3
