Capturing Beauty

Parkway Series #179   12 x 16   oil   $95.

My attention was pulled away from the trail into this woodland area by the sunlight filtering through the trees onto the warm forest floor.  The highlighted area of grass was flooded with light but individual leaves were sparkling everywhere with shimmering light.  It is really hard to do justice to the beauty of some moments.  My soul wants to capture the essence of this earthly beauty but sometimes it really is beyond our finite minds and talents to do it.  There is an ethereal, supernatural beauty that our soul longs for that we will not really know how to describe or paint until we come face to face with it in Heaven!
