Garden Trees 6x6" Acrylic on Canvasboard
I'm feeling a strong need to disconnect from the news and turn my attention to nature, which is my healing refuge from the makings of human beings who seem to have forgotten their humanity. Besides fall is my favorite time of year! So for the foreseeable future, I plan to spend much more time 'forest bathing' as the Japanese call it. Snuggling in the embrace of Mother Nature. We don't need to travel miles to find peace, we can visit little pockets of sanity even in the city, be they parks, meadows, streams or even galleries! The landscape above, is close to home, a natural buffer with a walking trail near the Highline Canal. It is believed that even looking out the window at a tree, or a picture of a tree, has positive, beneficial effects on our well being.*
