To sit before the natural world and internalize its presence with painting or drawing, is to discover its structure, color, form, and very existence on a profound level. The self must leave "the self" and delve into its living subject, along with all the elements of wind, weather, light, and change. It is almost like a parallel moving hand is working in tandem with your own. This is the alchemy I seek and trust. I lose myself in the natural world before me, yet the core of myself or creativity imprints itself within the painting...The process is both humbling and expansive - filled simultaneously with deeper knowing and astonishing surprise.
