So Fortunate – Chanticleer

Being in nature is such an inspiration and brings me wholeness and peace … Yet, what truly lifts me up is seeing it through an artistic lens. 

I am so fortunate to live close to Chanticleer, a pleasure garden in Wayne PA. During the pandemic, there is limited attendance, but I visit when I can. It has sparked my desire to be there and pay attention to the evolving seasons and the curious beautiful experiences that are just around the corner… or right in front of me.

There is so much to be aware of, explore and capture. My iPhone is always at the ready!

I’m curious … How is your artistic soul calling you in these strange days?

  5. Beautiful pictures Val. I’m enjoying watching the geese gathering on the river. Lots of colour on the trees for this first day of fall. It does make your heart lighter. Thank you.
