Passionate Life

My greatest passion, where I truly feel alive is amongst the whisper of the trees, the power of the mountains, the temperamental forces of the streams, the gentleness of the wildflowers, and the enduring wildlife. My friends, the horses and dogs teach me a new awareness, for to survive in the wilderness one must remain aware of all that surrounds you. When you focus on what is outside of yourself, you then find a stillness within. Painting is a mere expression of those things in my life that stir a passion for a vibrant, meaningful life.
