Painting can be a profound experience — one that engages all of our senses, our minds, and our spirits. It brings together observation with introspection, contemplation, and healing. One of the most rewarding ways to explore painting is by painting outside. Faced with nature’s dynamic forces, we develop visual sensitivity, flexibility, and resilience. We come into deeper relationship with nature and with ourselves. We begin to see the world as never before, and our paintings give evidence of that new vision.
