"Cassiel" by Ricky Schaede. Acrylics on birch panel, 2019.
* 15" x 10" * Archival giclee print.
Cassiel showed herself only to those who walked quietly through the forest. Make your footsteps silent like the falling leaves from above, and you will find her. Move through the branches like a sweet, gentle breeze and she will be there, beckoning you to walk the secret path with her. There she will take you to the heart of the forest, it’s pulsating green heart, provider of warmth and nourishment to all the plants and woodland creatures. She is it’s guardian, Cassiel, she who moves with unimaginable grace and strength.
