A Day in the Enchanted Forest

 

'The Enchanted Forest'. 5x7. Pastel. Karen Margulis

I spent the day in the shadow of the castle. It was a low key day spent relaxing and painting. We began the morning with a tour of the castle. It was awesome to see the inside. Many of the rooms have been restored with period furnishings. I could have spent hours poking around. We got to visit areas of the castle not normally seen on tours....like on the roof between towers! A great view but a bit scary!

The castle is surrounded by farmland and forests. I painted a view of these woods but I wanted a closer look.We drove a short distance and then got out to walk into the woods. We were looking for blueberries, beetles and mushrooms. We found all three. I also got some wonderful forest photos. It was magical.

 

Tomorrow I head to Stockholm for the night and then begin the final leg of this amazing journey....Finland!
