15 Artists 15 Journals 15 months plus1

Next journal I received was Marie's journal, "Nature".  I decided to do a snow scene because it is winter in Pennsylvania. It is Christmas time and New Year's. I love the quiet beauty when it snows.

I included a quote from John Muir. Muir was a conservationist whom  convinced President Teddy Roosevelt to protect Yosemite (including Yosemite Valley), Sequoia, Grand Canyon and Mt. Rainier as National Parks. The quote, "Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike".

Hi Beth,
I've just come in to visit, hadn't done it for a little while. And I just love your artwork and your words.
But this piece is so special, it stopped me right on my tracks. It's so stunning and inspiring, I wanted to thank you for creating such beautiful painting. The light on it is really spectacular, simply gorgeous!
