I feel energized and inspired whenever I see a landscape that pours forth the beauty and wonder of nature. The billowy clouds that ride upon the blue sky, the fields that dance with grasses and wildflowers, the cottage garden that boasts with bright splashes of color and sweet fragrances — I can’t help but feel drawn to them.
Painting the beauty I see in nature brings me a sense of joy. I try to paint from the inside out. Every painting is inspired by that joy and sense of freedom I feel when I sit and observe nature. For me, painting is a way to express the gratitude I feel toward God for all the pleasure that I feel when looking at all the beauty that he has created. What a blessing!
