Trees in the Mist

Happy Earth Day - every day!

Sunrise, watercolor 12 x 14 inches
The idea of an "Earth Day" began when I was in high school. Back then, environmental awareness on a large scale was just a seedling of a movement. Today, so many people are aware of environmental issues that an Earth "day" seems silly to many... because what we need is ongoing, daily awareness and action for protecting Earth's resources and wild places and creatures.

Is there a special place you love in nature? When can you get there to enjoy and say "thanks"!?!

I find that even the smallest moment of awareness for what's around me is soul-nourishing. It doesn't have to be a splendid vista. It might be something small that is a precious moment. . .

 . . . or something that is carrying on, in spite of how much people are having their impact.

What more can I do to be a good Earth Steward? There are so many ways . . . as I do them I give thanks to the magnificence of Earth.

I love these- I already got to see the sunset on 100 paintings, but really like the sketch book you did!
