“Wandering Towards the Light…” is an original scratchboard piece. It is based on a photo I took in 2009 during a visit to Alishan Mountain in Taiwan. My family and I hiked the famous Sacred Trees Trail, and at the end of the trail, we came upon this beautiful pagoda. The trees along the trail were gigantic and ancient (some up to one thousand years old)! I wanted this piece to reflect the peacefulness of the trail and communicate to others the beauty of Taiwan. This piece was first completed in black-and-white, and then I added a few accents of blue wash in water-soluble paints. The Chinese characters within the pagoda mean “Sacred Trees Trail”.
