"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." - John Muir

I’m an amateur artist, photographer, and naturalist, obsessed with plants and constantly looking for ways to integrate nature into my art.
I love fossils, fungi, Earth history, the Victorian Era, art gear, books, and traveling to beautiful, unique places.
I am forever drawn to those things in this world that are both wonderful and strange.

Interests
The trip is over and I'm back home.
With all the weather troubles and misc tribulations, this winter was awesome.  I saw so many beautiful places, new and old, took hundreds of photos, and have an infinite number of ideas for artwork inspired by the grand and unique qualities of the desert and its flora and fauna. 
Now that I'm home, the photography will most likely be less(until this winter weather ceases and plants start to spring up, that is!), but I hope to get back into the painting game soon and work my lax artistic muscles. 
That's all the updates for now!
  • Watching: the woods outside my back window
  • Drinking: coffee!

Goblet Moss Sporophytes and Dandelion
Moss during sporulation!  Just happened to notice it in the sunlight while wandering the yard, so I had to grab my camera to catch it. 
I might be able to finally put that moss ID book I bought to use!  And so I did: Physcomitrium pyriforme - 'Goblet Moss'
