A peaceful place to be with no judgment other than personal reflection and grace to grow as desired is truly a blessing.
We all need peaceful places to just be present and open to new ideas, and to find comfort in old memories that bring us joy in the thought of them. Perhaps a space is needed to grieve in solitude. For some, we may find solace in our yard. Others may need to go to a park or simply a drive, preferably in the countryside, where nature may help to salve our soul and bring comfort and well-being.
Rose Beauty is a reminder to look for the beautiful in each day and person.
Live in such a way as to shine the radiance of your best you – look for the beauty in nature and others. We do make a difference by our very presence, so shine. By being humble, honest, and hopeful you can shed forth a light that others may see more clearly.
This image started with one of my nature photos and then through some photo processing I came upon an image I liked. Interpretation is always through one’s own perspective, and the first thing I thought of when seeing this image emerge was the idea of keep on moving.
Changing your perspective, can sometimes help you to keep moving, when you otherwise feel stuck.
I have long awaited a time when my wife and I could share a common gallery of our Art & Photography. Finally, I am glad we can share a common website, featuring Karen’s Art from the Heart and my Nature/Landscape Photography.
Each of us find our own way for self-expression. For Karen and I, art and photography provide a way to share our thoughts and feelings. The Nice-Webb Galleries website represents a portal into our artwork expressions of life experience. We both enjoy and benefit so much by being in nature and closely observing it’s wonders. Karen happily invests much of her time in flower gardens and I find mountain hikes restful, restorative, and a call to regain my focus.
May you the reader, this day, be encouraged by your own form of self-expression.
May we find a variety of ways to give, not only this holiday season, but always. Perhaps one of the best gifts we can give is our undivided attention and time. Truly listening to one another is a great gift. The best gifts are those we give from our heart and not those of our financial resources.
However, if you are still interested in gift ideas that I can offer from a distance, here are some of my photography gift products. Do remember though, Love is the best gift of all.
Mum Imagination is my photoart representation as a kaleidoscope of a field of yellow, orange, and purple mums. I view the wonders of nature, and my mind is filled with so much more than what my eyes alone perceive. With this in mind I took a photo of mine with a field of mums, and let my imagination go, creating this photo art piece.
May we all use our imagination to usher into our world more beauty, peace, equity, and justice.

Nature and Landscape Photos I’ve taken serve as moments of remembrance and reflection. Many times, as I am drawn to observe some aspect of nature, I am also invited by my observation to ask how my life is like this nature focal point. Then I am grateful for this moment of self-awareness and encouraged to grow personally. So, it my hope that my photo images can also be a source of inspiration for others.
Nature inspired photo art creation is based on my photo of a burning bush. The photo processing to produce this effect creates a mood of wonder which is what I feel when gazing upon the autumn beauty of burning bushes.
Lately, I am being drawn to playfully create photoart expressions of gratitude and wonderment with my photos of nature and mountain landscapes.
Peering through some nearby bushes, from a distance, one can see the lower waterfall of Graveyard Fields along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The big sky and autumn fall colors gives way to a beautiful moment.
Each day, try to look past those things nearby in your daily experience and see the beauty as if you are peering at your life from a distance.
