The love of nature and seeing the most highs creation is refreshing and being an artist is a blessing and a gift. Getting out to hike and explore a mountain or a river or even going on day trips to see the world around me fuels that creative tank. Listening to the birds, hearing the water rush over a waterfall or cascade over small rocks in a stream, feeling the cool breeze as it carries the smells of the forest. Basking in the warm sun as it filters thru the trees. I take notice of all of it and being able to experience those places and the natural world around me inspires me from within.
