A big part of my life
Has always been finding my way to nature when I need to recharge my batteries and find inspiration in my life and art. Simply put, nature is my church.
It always surprises, teaches and awes me.
Last weekend was pretty magical.
The sun was shining and I spent some time just absorbing the rays and quietly exploring the beach and wooded trails.
My mind was open to the beauty nature had to offer this weekend and I was not disappointed. There were many ice cakes/blocks on the beach. Worn away by some of the worlds highest tides, but not worn away enough to be carried back to the ocean where they belong.
Their temporary nature just called out to me to take some photos.
Initially, I was just inspired by the beauty of the different shapes.
I then started thinking of how some of those shapes might translate into a sculpture, or a series of them. Hmmm…
Lovely pix- and I’m jealous u r so close 2 the beach! I can’t wait 2 go hiking again .
Beautiful. Mom always told me when I needed to find my center, besides prayer, to look up at the stars…It still works. Blessings and Peace.
Great pictures and truly artistic! I liked the way you interpreted them from an artist’s lens.
I relate to you saying nature is my church! So totally. Birds, trees, water, mountains all bring me back to the heart of things… And then I love connecting through art as well. Lovely inspiration, thank you.
Love the frosty beach .Beautiful photo.. So happy I found your blog.
We are too! Welcome! ❤🙏
Nature is so tranquil and rejuvenating. I think the Kraft Bear looks more like an alien. 🙂
Wow, these are so cool! Nature is a boundless source of inspiration! 😄
When I lived on Vancouver Island, I walked the dog of the woman who let me share her house and discovered the beauty of the forests and Shawnigan Lake. When I moved back to Colorado, I made a habit of walking those trails through forests. What I’ve learned about walking in nature is that it calms my mind, strengthens my body, and connects me with All That Is beyond my sitting meditation. It helps me stay in the present moment.
Simply beautiful. Always enjoy looking at nature. Nature is truly inspiring.
