The photograph above is an award-winning print of ours called “Milliums of Trilliums”.
We have it hanging in the entrance hall to our studio.
This blog is in honour of Mother Nature and spring’s arrival.
AND we’re having a contest to win one of our ‘Trillium’ creations.

Make sure to enter the contest!!
It’s isn’t rocket science to know that Mother Nature is a good ‘medicine’ for what ails us.
But up until now, it wasn’t clear what the right ‘dosage’ of nature is. Turns out it’s all it takes is 20 minutes.
That’s right 20 minutes and it will do you a world of good.
The data revealed that just a twenty-minute nature experience
was enough to significantly reduce cortisol levels.
But if you spent a little more time immersed in a nature experience,
20 to 30 minutes sitting or walking,
cortisol levels dropped at their greatest rate.
I learned about this in an article from my niece who is a Chiropractor. She shared it from an online resource for Canadian Chiropractors.
In a study conducted at the University of Michigan, Dr. Mary Carol Hunter, an Associate Professor and lead author of the research made the following statement.
“Healthcare practitioners can use our results as an evidence-based rule of thumb on what to put in a nature-pill prescription.”

We also enjoy bringing nature shots into our home and office. They provide a soothing atmosphere when we simply stop to gaze at them and take a moment to ‘chill’. Here’s a photograph of the largest size of the “Milliums of Trilliums” image in our entrance hall. It measures 50 x 24 inches.
And it’s a real eye-catcher!
TA DA!! Drum roll for the CONTEST DETAILS!!
Here is a photograph of a smaller version of the ‘Trilliums’. This is mounted, laminated and framed. It’s a studio display piece and you could win it for yourself or as a gift for someone.
