Where the psyche and the natural world meet

Nature is my greatest inspiration.  I have a deep soulful connection with nature that is difficult to put into words.   Simply put, I feel an almost constant sense of awe and wonder about it.  I try to spend time in nature every day.  I am affected by many aspects of it, not just the trees and the birds, deer and squirrels, but also the breeze, the rain and sun, the rocks, the grasses, even the soil.  Whenever I am outside my senses come alive, and I seem to absorb the essence of the place directly into my body.  Everything seems 'right with the world.'   If I am able to convey this experience through my artwork, even just a little, I feel that I have succeeded as an artist.
