Immersing oneself in Nature is pure healing. I painted this scene, mostly from memory, after a hike in the rainforest to visit the falls. The destination was the falls, but it was the journey of communing with nature that reminded me to slow down and consciously witness the life all around me. Nature begs to be seen and felt. Each turn on the trail yielded to a breathtaking view. It is this magical moment, with the light streaming through the dense foliage to the forest floor as I take a moment to witness this sacred beauty before ascending the trail.
