Ever been on a really beautiful lake? In eastern Canada, where I'm from, it abounds.
The clean air, the sounds, the feel, it's amazing. I've been to various parts of Canada and various parts of the world, and nothing can compare. The only reason I ever did any travelling was to grow my art. To have a respectable art career, it has to be done. The artist does it for the collector, the art, and for the artist with his flow. For me, for my mind and imagination, everything goes in,
all things of the landscape and its people. All beauty AND insanity gets absorbed. ;)
