Treat yourself to Forest Bathing! The fascinating detail of Aleta Karstad's plein air painting, "Fern Pelt of the Frontenac" is enlarged for your delight - from the canvas she held in her hand as she immersed herself in the forest - enlarged to fill your vision with a living tapestry as you bathe. This mossy, ferny pelt clothes the rocksof the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, the ancient granite bridge that connects the Canadian Shield to the Adirondack Mountains.
"The quality of the fabric is excellent, the edges are very nicely finished, the fabric repels water well & dries quickly. The quality of the print is fabulous - just like one of your beautiful oils. The colours appear true - I liked it so much I bought two & I am very happy with your product." - J. B., Toronto, Canada
