I actually have two and unsure which to use.
"I enjoy taking walks with nature and through my art, you are invited along."
"I aspire to capture the spirit, serenity and beauty of nature in hope that my work will stir an emotional response with my viewers."
Perhaps being born in Patton, PA, a country town began my love of nature. As a young child I fondly remember walks in the woods and surrounding mountains. There has always been a need to express and share the experience I felt within my soul of nature's beauty and serenity. Nature has beckoned me continuously throughout my life to take a walk with her. Every painting is an experience of life, part of the journey. For me nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Her sounds and moods strike a chord in my heart and in my spirit. One that I seek out, feel at peace with and be inspired by forever. So, yesterday, today and always while on my journey through life, with a whispered prayer and gratitude, I aspire to capture the spirit, serenity and beauty with the hope that through my paintings, the viewer's spirit will experience a tranquil uplifting if even for a few moments in time. I invite you to take a walk with nature through my paintings and join me on that journey.
