“Every day we are bombarded with a constant stream of visual stimulation. In experiencing this, I fear, we are losing our ability to truly see and observe the lovely world we inhabit. My goal is to stop the clock in hopes that the viewer can catch his or her breath. I want to share the peace and serenity that I find in nature. A grove of trees, a foggy shoreline, the reflections of morning light on water. There’s refuge in the quiet places that shape our landscape.” John Fulweiler
