There are times when nature makes us feel small but very important. I made this drawing of my cousin, Austen, walking in the shadows of redwoods. I tried to convey the gentleness, awe, and respect embodied in her photo.
Austen has been such a teacher to me about having wonder and curiosity for nature and science. She has taught me so many lessons on BEING in nature, for which I am so grateful!
Do you know that feeling of smallness yet greatness that nature can impart on us? Redwoods, mountains, flooding, and starry nights trigger that feeling in me.
