How exciting the changing seasons are in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. With every rainfall the dry landscape transforms into lush green rolling hills and the blue grey granite outcroppings bloom with moss. I walk around touching, having to feel the moss with my fingers because I’m amazed by the transformation, I’m amazed by nature. How will I ever capture this magic? Can I paint the air, the trees and mother earths essence so that others will feel what I feel? So much to learn, so many paintings to paint!
