Since childhood, I have enjoyed looking at pictures of nature. Soon, I took a special liking to trees, going so far as to earn a degree in forest conservation and management. At the same time, I started taking my own photographs of nature. I've been at it for more than forty years. I have four-season images of forests and fields located mostly in the United States' upper Midwest, and also in the West and in the South. In recent years, I started experimenting with converting some of my photographs into digitally rendered "paintings". Results of that work are on display here.
Here are a few lines from a great Hebrew: “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin. And yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” My passion is to reflect the glory of the Artist of all flowers and fields and forests ... and His faithfulness to those who seek His face.
