A Home Amongst the Trees...

This residence is nestled right at the entrance of the Catskill Forest Preserve in the Hudson Valley. I drew this portrait for the owner, who's a true lover of botany. Whether drawing inside or outside of this home, I was constantly reminded of its beautiful natural surroundings. No doubt, this is a feature the owner appreciates.  I've read that David Hockney does extensive drawings of his home environment to gain a deeper understanding of it. That's great advice for anybody who loves to draw! I hope you enjoy this virtual tour..

{ If you see the world as beautiful, thrilling and mysterious,
as I think I do, then you feel quite alive.}
