Grab your keys and go….from a San Francisco luncheon to sun drenched Cayucos and then to a cool, mist filled day in Bandon, Oregon, I have marveled at the endless beauty of the world. The landscape renews us, brings us joy and hope in a time filled with anxious thoughts and feelings. Yes, we are sorrowful at the shrinking of the natural world. We stagger at the perils of over civilization, pollution, global warming, the shrinking of animal habitats, the acidification of the oceans, (to name a few), as they loom over our lives in an endless stream of fear. However, the joy of creating seems to transcend my fear. As I paint, I am in prayerful reverence for nature and I hope to communicate love, joy, and transcendent hope.
