Welcome to my blog. The beauty of nature is the impetus behind my desire to paint. I consider myself fortunate to have this wonderful place of refuge which is my art. Painting is for me a window to a more profound appreciation of nature and has opened the door to deep friendships with like-minded souls. Writing this blog is a way to share my thoughts on art and nature with a wider audience but it is also a diary to myself. Our thoughts become clearer when we write them down.
