My recent work is about a return to nature, which takes the form of a couple of fruit trees or a mountain. I feel that only by 

being in nature will one feel extremely peaceful; where one can find a serenity that emanates from the inner self.

It is a place free of slogans and there is nothing to fathom. By returning to this boundless inner sanctum, one can access a life force.

Perhaps it is just that for me? I feel closer to myself as I channel this internal energy into my painting.
