"When we are in nature we experience the world through all of our senses in a dynamic way, but at the same time we are framing what we see through the cultural expectations we have absorbed through representational systems such as landscape painting, wildlife documentary, and travel guides. It is impossible, then, to have a true, non-mediated experience of nature even though we may long for it." -Gregory Euclide

I'm going outside, albeit I'll make a quick stop to sbux before braving the outdoor world.

That first piece sums up my weekend quite literally. We were stuck inside painting when the sun was shining and all I wanted to do was be outside!
