Sometimes, when we walk out in nature, we really feel something. When we're alone and free in our thinking. This piece, Winter Welcome, brought me to this kind of flow when I was painting it. I so enjoyed allowing this landscape to come out of me. It felt...soul-freeing...
For the people who put up with me for all these painting years, you understand my mind very well. You know something takes over when I paint. I get very immersed. I get almost in a trance. I actually do feel like I go somewhere else. For those of you who try to look into my art and see what lives in there, hats off to you.
Sometimes, the land we cherish and love, does feel like Mother Nature. Our love for her goes on. May we always cherish her.
Maybe she'll see you out there on the land, letting yourself go, like I I let myself go when I painted this work.
