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.
