Artist’s Comments

Journal Entry: September 1997

My journey lured me off the beaten path to venture deeper into the forbidden wilderness. My quest becomes impossible as the forest thickens and the vegetation surrounds me. I am its prisoner. It does not allow me to pass. Thousand year old Sequoia trees stand like generals commanding the underbrush to defend what lays beyond. I defy the request and break through. As I try to get a bearing on where I am, I check my compass and notice it is spinning out of control. With my food and water gone, I can go no further. I stumble exhausted, and lay down by a creek to rest. Suddenly, I wake up to the sounds of children playing; yet I know that I’m the only one here.  I pull myself up, climb over a boulder, glance in the direction of the sounds, and notice a sparkling light dancing over a blue waterfall. It seems alive. I bring out my sketchbook and quickly render this scene. Where am I? I still do not know, but this place is different. I have stumbled upon a playground where God’s children frolic among the dancing waters, where light tells the story, and where “In Nature’s Kingdom, Children Play.”
