Nature's Voice

How do I possibly represent nature’s beautiful voice? I work and lament over my failures. The beauty touches me so deeply and then once I face the act of painting I am brought my to my knees as this calls me to humble myself and question how I could ever expect to bring such exhilaration to a canvas. I have faced this conundrum so many times in my art, yet I cannot give up the need to express the beauty I see in this world. The voice that reaches into the deep chords of my heart and helps me realize this life is beautiful and precious. I may try and fail, over and over again, but I will be forever grateful for the gift of sight, of voice and all the wonderment of this miraculous world.

The shades and colors are so eye catching and glowing, soft, absolutely lovely. I look at other works and so admire the ability. I appreciate your frustration but you actually do the work, I mostly look today.:-)
