Landscape Painting is an adventure, a long
trail that winds through forests, along beaches,
and over mountain passes.
Paint on the canvas and the canvas disappears
only the Landscape remains.
A gift from the past
from those who saw
the Land as great.
How do the mountains form?  Why do the
plants pattern themselves so?
Tributaries of studies, evolved from long ago.
The adventure now is how to create
a way to preserve
the Earth.
