As a landscape painter, I continually look at the trees, the sky, the mountains, the flowers, and the clouds. I see many of the same things every day. I pass by the same trees on my hikes, run by the same rocks, drive around the same bends in the road and see the same vistas from my windows. But with the change in seasons comes a new outlook. Fog obscures a hill, sunlight highlights a ridge, rain shrouds the trees and snow blankets the meadows, which gives me a new way to see something that's always been there.

Change is constantly part of our lives and flux is something we must learn to deal with in order to be happy. Adaptation is one of our stronger abilities as humans and dealing with it gracefully is one of our greatest challenges. Enjoying each moment along the way is the best way I've found to do that.
'Yonder', the landscape exhibition opens at Gallery MAR on Friday, November 29th from 6-9pm. The show will be on display through mid-December.
