This piece was inspired by the flowers, stems and roots of our province. Those little things that momentarily shake the stress and anxiety from our lives.
There are times when life feels like an endless series of sprints and keeping up with it all leaves us exhausted and breathless. Candace’s piece is inspired by a natural antidote to this stress: Saskatchewan’s wilderness.
Her dark floral silhouettes and calm composition embody long walks in the forests around Emma Lake and the welcome sigh of relief that comes with escaping into nature. She gives us a window into the simple things that surround and connect us: a starry sky, a breeze through wheat fields, the perfection of a Prairie Lily. But most importantly, she reminds us to take a moment to appreciate it all.
