All things of the universe are miracles, each as profound as any. Walt Whitman

IMPRESSIONS OF PLACE contemporary oil paintings
Imagine walking in the woods on a snowy day. The absolute quiet is intoxicating! The colors of snow... the shadows and reflections; the sights, sounds and smells fill the air; and always, the light. Add an easel, some paints, an artist willing to embrace the possiblities of Nature and you're ready for the adventure of "plein-air" painting. "I'm inspired by this challenge. Anyone who has ever walked through a forest especially in winter, has felt its dignity and monumentality. Painting is my way of preserving that experience and sharing it with others. It's my poetry, passion and my 'true north'." Carol Grigus
