Trying to paint this place is like trying to describe a falling star, or an acid trip. You have to be there to truly experience it. There is a clarity, intensity and absence that defies depiction. There is no "story" to accompany this painting. I was repeatedly dumbstruck by the singularity of each moment. Nature claws back the layers, until your reptilian brain reveal memories evoking preverbal cries. Civilization becomes antithetical. Why did Moses lead his people out of the wilderness, only to have us want a glimpse of Eden?
