Forest for the Trees - 8x12 Earthprint ,Search & Inspire Series

I focus my camera on images that I find emanating from what I feel are energy areas in nature. I use oil paints minimally on the surface of the photographs to define what I see. This series of Earthprints involve the viewer in the process of searching for a vision. Each print comes with a list of hidden images for the viewer to find. I don't define everything that I see, so there is room for the viewers imagination to be inspired.
