Welcome to my new website. I’m starting this blog to find others who may experience the Divine through nature. As a person of faith and as an artist, my favorite way to respond to nature is through art. Next to simply being outside, I love to paint and draw outdoors.
My congregation at First Congregational Church UCC in Moline, Illinois has offered me a sabbatical for this summer for the purpose of rest and renewal. They are also sending me out with a wonderful list of places to paint–places where they have experienced God. I’m keeping a running list viewable under “Places List” near the top of the screen.
I may not be able to hit all of the nature sites in two months, but I plan to visit many of them to paint and draw. I will keep you posted right here. How do you experience the Spirit in nature? Please share your thoughts. I’m preparing to be amazed!
