Trying to capture nature in art is truly impossible, as no one can do it as well as nature itself. The magnificence, the awesomeness, can only be fully realized in person. An artist can only ʻremindʼ one of nature. Of course, this reminder may be, actually must be interpreted in a different way that says “art”. I work with different compositions, palettes, formats, concepts to convey my feelings of nature…..soft beaches, striking desert, kinetic energy between palms. No, it is not worth trying to recreate nature. Yes, it is important to respect it.
