Philadelphia’s Cobbs Creek Park is the subject a many of my paintings and drawings.  The Wissahickon Valley, Forbidden drive, Valley Green Inn and the numerous attractions along the Wissahickon Creek have long held a prominent part of my artist portfolio . It’s rich history and stunning natural beauty beckons me from time to time.

Hiking seems to be popular with the people that surround me lately.   One of my daughters enjoysmud runsand a couple of friends are on a quest to hike as many National Parks as they can.  With this in mind, I decided to create this drawing. The essence of hiking in one of my favorite places, the Wissahickon trail.

The model and the landscape are aggregates of people and places. I wanted the hiker to be semi anonymous to create the feeling of every female hiker, with a certain cautious determination about her. The background was created from memory mostly of the Wissahickon Trail. I am very proud of this drawing.
