From the Artist

"I paint to convey the peace and wonder I feel when I put brush to paper.  During those hours, I return to the awe and awareness of nature I knew as a child.  When those who observe my work enter that magical place with me, that is when I fell my purpose is accomplished, and I am twice blessed."

-Catherine Anderson
