"Life is a great adventure...accept it in such a spirit." President Theodore Roosevelt
Our nations sixty-three (63) national parks offer us all an opportunity to free our spirit and dream. Their unique natural wonders and unforgettable terrains are embedded in our memories long after we have left them and returned home. I have visited
twenty-five of them in my adulthood, stopping to sketch or paint en plein air at many. I try to capture the energy that I feel pulsating from these breathtaking vistas with expressionist brushstrokes and highly energized colors. Nature is so alive
to me that I want to capture these moments in perpetuity and share these sacred experiences with my viewers.
