Mary Rountree Moore
“I strive to capture the feeling of those fleeting moments of the sublime- the vast beauty of nature, which humbles us all. The images are derived from nature’s innate abstractions, allowing the mind’s eye to gather its own interpretations. It is the memory of those undeniable visual experiences that gives me inspiration. Balance in the natural order is strongly apparent in my serene landscapes.”
