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 so beautiful and 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.
