For Ralph Waldo Emerson, the universe was composed of two parts: NATURE and THE SOUL. Being in Nature, accordingly, was an interactive experience. "Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." says Emerson.  In other words, when we look at a landscape, what we see is a reflection of who and what we are. A landscape painting shows not only the spirit of the place, but the soul of the painter. --- loosely extracted from the past September issue of THE ARTIST magazine.
