This is a metaphor, but it is also literal." Artist Holly Friesen will speak about this very phenomena in the making of her own contemporary landscape paintings. Holly is a working artist based out of Montreal, Canada and has painted the boreal forests and precambrian rock of Northern Quebec for decades.
