Communication and expression are a means of reaching out to make ourselves known, define who we are and align with our needs and desires. The way we do this, either consciously or unconsciously, defines us outwardly to others and the universe. To be strong, we need to stand up tall through our personal consciousness for what is within us. It is our "soul" way of displaying ourselves and fulfilling our needs and desires. The mountain conifers, like the Ponderosa Pine, do this so eloquently, which is why I have featured them in "Ponderosa Web Of Life," reaching ever upward and outward.

I ship canvas rolled in tubes only for larger image sizes - you need to stretch canvas over stretcher bars or hire it done. Large-size canvases stretched are prohibitively expensive to ship.
