Power of Nature

Entering an Arlington Artists Alliance show entitled Power of Nature was a clear choice for me because I am consistently inspired by nature, in my paintings and in my life.  The two paintings I offered were both accepted, the one pictured here and Grand Wonderland.  Discovery Through the Ferns made it into this post because I was surprised, pleased, and humbled to have this painting selected for Third Place in the show.  The power depicted in this painting is the power to surprise and delight.
