My Childhood in Nature
collection of artist
This is a highly personal painting of my childhood memories of being out in nature. Although not brought up to be religious or to have a doctrinal view of God, I regularly got this awesome sense of immensity, and light filled perspective from nature. It gave me invaluable underpinnings in spirituality, and an understanding of the dreamlike aspect of what most people consider as reality.
I feel very fortunate to have had this upbringing, and wish it for more children, although I feel it is getting only more rare. Hence I felt this childhood experience was important to paint and share, not only because it explains a lot about my early engagement with the world, but also encapsulates my hopes for other innocent hearts going forth and exploring their natural environment.
