This painting is part of a series called Nature Chronicles - Seeing What is Outside from Inside. His objective in this series is to make abstract paintings based on looking outside at his natural surroundings. He lives in the woods of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, USA. His woods are beautiful and inspiring every day of every season. Many species of birds (wild turkeys, hawks, finches, crows, doves, cardinals, bluebirds, sparrows, and all sorts of woodpeckers) are regulars. All sorts of animals (squirrels, foxes, raccoons, chipmunks, opossums, and flying squirrels) live just outside. The natural backdrops (trees, ferns, lichen and mosses, mountain laurels and rhododendrons) inspire him. The mountain weather (snow, fog, ice, rain, wind and sun) changes hourly.
