Scenery has become a recent affection of mine.
Being so naturally taken by and drawn to humans, I had often sadly viewed landscape pieces as all obnoxious twigs and leaves and stones.
I have realized however how wonderfully scenic paintings offer a unity of color and value so well balanced across hills, mountains, forests and oceans.
There is something undeniably enchanting and mysteriously peaceful about these wide encompassing compositions.
I am eager to explore them more as I grow out of my youthful, bored and premature misjudgment of representing some of the most beautiful imagery this earth offers everyday.
