“Wild and Wonderful” Collection: #wildandwonderfulcollection A series of wildflower paintings around the theme BEAUTY FROM ASHES. Many species of wildflowers spring up and thrive in soil that is rich in ashes! A wild, beautiful mess emerges from the remains of forest fires. Ruins do sing; ruins do dance and from the ruins BEAUTY RISES!

#wildandwonderfulcollection White Fireweed is rare, wild and wonderful!


#wildandwonderfulcollection We collect things we value. Wildflowers collected in a vase. A beautiful mess!

Psalm 23 The Good Shepherd David’s Poetic Praise to God ¹God is my Fierce Protector and my Pastor. I always have more than enough. ²He offers a resting place for me In His luxurious love. His tracks take me to the quiet brooks of bliss, The oasis of peace.
