I could feel tension leaving my muscles as my limbs softened in recognition of the tree limbs. The wilderness reached its arms up to meet my soul which in turn seemed to leap up in recognition.
This is the source of my paintings, I become the landscape and the sounds and textures become my paintings. The landscape quietly reveal itself to me through the paint. I feel so wholesome and alive when this connection is activated by the painting process. My senses become heightened and the whole world feels like a sublime expression of the divine mystery.
