In seeking out the green places, the natural world, I seek out connection - a connection with nature, the world and the realities of a life lived as part of the world, not in the world of concerns that we so often create inside our own heads.
A connection with our pets, our loved ones, or with nature makes us see and feel the beauty of the world around us and enables us to feel a certain gratitude for the world we are a part of.
We can seek out the world of nature in our everyday lives. Our connection with nature doesn't have to wait for a week's holiday or a day-trip to the country at the weekend.
We can connect and feel gratitude for the world we are a part of when we interact with our pets, when we see a bird or a tree, even through a window, when we stop for a moment to look at a vase of flowers in our home.
And of course, I hope that when you bring my art into your home, you are able to feel that sense of connection with, and love for, the world around us, too.
Let me know, what in nature makes you feel most connected and most alive?
