“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.” J. Muir.
Did you know John Muir was actually born in Scotland? However, his influence on American wilderness preservation is significant. He co-founded the @sierraclub which has since secured protection for 439 parks and monuments.
John Muir recognized that being connected to nature connects us to each other. I could not agree with him more.
His birthday is April 21st. This year it will be 181 years since his birth. It seems timely to release my John Muir series on this day. No guarantee yet, but it is my tentative plan. I can’t wait to get these pieces out into the world.
Each of the paintings in the J.M series has a quote written into them. Wether you live in an apartment in the city, near the ocean, in the middle of nowhere, or any place in between, I hope these pieces will remind you nature connects us all.
