The inspiration and story behind this was from an old post card my dad had sent me from the beautiful redwood forest in California. My parents and I went there often when I was a kid and I loved it. I think that is when I fell in love with nature and learned to appreciate it a lot. I wanted to capture the feeling of renewal of spirit that being in the mountains gave me. And it still makes me feel this way--like rays of light into my soul!
