A Forest is Born...

The sacred beauty of trees, and the feeling one can experience standing all alone, amidst a forest of just the right assemblage at just the right time.

One of the few mystical experiences of my life happened in a forest, where I was surrounded

by trees and a bare ground, the light came in just right, at just the right time as I wandered into the space. I remember pausing to just soak it in, at that moment it was clear to me that we are all one, and everything is connected.

A deep reverence was born, for wild places, for places that silently speak to those who are listening. Since this experience I have produced hundreds of tree renderings of varying sizes, scales, colors, media, and shapes. All of them reference this mystical moment, when all was transcended and I felt a grand unity.
