New Journal Spread: Back to Nature

BacktoNature_RUristaJournal0913_large

This spread came after a plein air art session with a friend. A simple sketch surprised me, and evolved into a deeply expressive journal spread. It made me realize…sometimes we stumble upon something we didn’t realize we had lost. It had felt like ages since I had simply sat in the grass with my sketchbook, under the trees, protected from the mist. No words, just a simple connection to the present moment, a connection to the real nature of things. Sometimes, a simple plein air sketch can transport you closer to your own self than you had ever imagined. Sometimes, a simple return to nature can be, if we allow it,  a return to your own true nature.


Would love to hear your thoughts!
