Many years ago, I was coached to spend a week just making art; hike on the trails behind my home, take and make more Impressionistic Nature Photographs. “Dreaming of You” was taken back then on a hot summer day. I sat for a long time, watching and meditating on the light on this shallow stream. Listening to the sweet sound of the gently moving water. One of my favorite places to go with my camera; take photographs, and just BE. Also, where, from a different angle, in the spring, I took the photographs “Jeweled Water” and “Monet’s Spring”.

Last week, when winter turned to summer, I took a hike with a dear friend on a nearby shaded forest trail surrounded with cool shallow streams. In Shutesbury, MA, near my home, there are lots of trails in the woods. It was good to be Under the Forest Canopy, connecting with my friend, getting some exercise amidst the beauty of the woods. We walked right by the spot I took this photograph. A nice memory. A sweet hike. Continue reading

Jeweled Water, one of my 20 impressionistic nature photographs that I took after a long luscious hike in the woods behind my home.

Light. Water. Transformation.
When I take my camera into the woods, I feel my connection with the forest. It’s like meditating – a way to get back to my own true nature. The sun calls me to a particular spot and I click the shutter when I see that rich, afternoon light … dancing light. Most of these photographs are taken within walking distance of my Western Massachusetts home. They are a celebration of New England seen through the eye of my heart. My work is about inspiration and healing – about being so present in the moment that everything vibrates and shines. These photographs are about sun light. I see perfection in nature – patterns – artistic jewels that reveal themselves. Continue reading
