“Drops of Jupiter” (by the rock group “Train”), has been a favorite of mine for decades. I never really bothered to look up what the song was about, just assumed it was a girlfriend. I did a deeper dive and found that the song is actually about the artists mother’s premature passing and his imagining where she is now.
I have always felt that there is something very spiritual about being in nature and I try to embrace that as much as I can. Cultures across the span of time have gravitated to the mountains for healing, inspiration, peace and clarity. I paint from my heart, hoping to share that comfort with whomever views my works.
