Nature can strike me with awe and wipe away my foolishness. I know at once when the word “woah” flows through my being and out through my throat, I am left with another moment in nature where I have once again partook in the opportunity of resetting my foolish “worry clock.” Realizing yet again life is not exactly what I think it is, my wisdom is squat next to God’s, and all the worries of the world are but a buzzing of noises that restrict me from the ocean of pure silent unending peace. Peace that was once drifting overhead amongst the stars and peace that is now found within me.

When I can open up to embrace just a smidgen of God’s amazement in nature, I can only be thankful. Who am I to complain at all? I have a life. I am alive. And I am even fortunate to be in good health and aware enough to see the generosity of love all around me.

In these moments of “nature wowing” I get a warm tingle in my spine. After I descend from the mountain, traverse back up stream, and tuck into the confines of my dwelling, I am fresh. I have been rebooted and I truly start anew. Does everyone have this ability? How many people experience this sensation? I am not sure. All I know is Nature, coupled with amazement, and sprinkled with the acknowledgment of God is wonderful and could very well make the world a better place if done just a little bit more.

New Abstract Landscape Paintings

As of writing this I have finished my 3rd landscape. I am very excited. I hope that this enjoyment will take me through completing  7 or more paintings. I have been gearing up my website for these paintings. This collection of paintings should be uploaded at my website within the coming months. The originals will be for sale straight from my site. Like most everything I do, they are simple…large…slightly abstract… and demonstrate a love of color.

Here’s a sneak peak at one abstract landscape, 20″ x 30″ acrylic on gallery canvas:
