Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area- Adam's Creek

I lived in Jersey for 7 years... it wasn't really the state for me but I really liked driving out to the water gap to go hiking! I really found sanctuary out there, and I still go to this day whenever I can, even though it's now 10 hours to get there. It's really the only place that I felt truly at home. I know this forest like the back of my hand- and have spent countless hours in it, solo and with friends. It made me feel fresh, alive and rejuvenated. My best friend, Debbie took photos of the forest when I took her one day, and from one of those photos, I did this oil painting some years back. Jade made the frame by hand!
I'm looking forward to possibly FINISHING the forest painting this weekend. It's my goal. We'll see! After it's finished it will need about 2 weeks to dry before I can move it to it's new home, so the sooner it's done, the better!

Thanks for reading

  1. This place certainly does look peaceful and calming. I can tell why you would feel at home there. Sort of like I do at the cabin where the forest painting picture was taken. It is important to have places like this in our lives where we can reconnect with our true selves. I can hardly wait to have the painting hanging in my home and have a beautiful reminder of the place I hold in my heart.
