Meditation Falls was created from Plein Air studies I did on site in near Hunter Mountain, NY.

The painting embodies the inner state when one is contemplating nature and existence.  There is a hushed silence as well as a sense of fertility that are two aspects which correspond to the inner experience while meditating in nature. The act of painting is an act of contemplation, wholeness and seeking transcendent meaning.  Nature and its inherent mystery, washes over us only through our inner understanding.
