Landscapes and Plein Air
"I found, to my surprise, that I wanted to sit quietly in a forest and try to transmit the great cosmic energy of nature through my fingers onto a simple piece of paper. I found that I preferred to stand at my old easel in a field of sunflowers and try simply to feel and learn from the greatest artist, the Creator. For despite all of the groundbreaking and stretching of all the artists of the modern world, the interior of a flower defeats us all for sheer beauty and depth of meaning" - David Palladini
