Today, I got a few hours to steal away to do a landscape study for a big composition I'm putting together. I do not consider myself a landscape painter, so this was a bit intimidating for me. Nature is my church. It is where I go to find grounding, meaning, inspiration and peace. And yet, I hardly ever paint it. I think that is because I have such high reverence for it. I can never do it justice. For many cultures it is not permissible to depict their Deity, and I guess for me it has seemed the same. So here is my humble attempt at nature.
