31. Pathways to Umbria

When I finished this painting, I stood back to look at how the colors and shapes worked together and I could not stop thinking of Italy, especially Umbria. I thought of when I was there and what inspired me about being there, about exploring that area.
It was always a path that intrigued me most - beckoning to be walked upon.

32. Over the Cradle of Africa

Prosperous conditions throughout the world in fertile river locations prompted nomadic people in various regions to form a sedentary, agrarian community and, thus, become a "Cradle of Civilization."
The Crowned Crane of Africa is among the “settlers” who live in marshy areas all over Africa, creating their own cradle of life.

33. The Freedom Runners

In 1971, the United States Congress recognized Mustangs as “living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West, which continue to contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people.”
Today, free-roaming horses have disappeared from 6 states and, according to the Bureau of Land Management, their remaining population is fewer than 25,000, with more than half of them in Nevada, with other significant populations in Montana, and Oregon.

34. Terraced Fields

Terraced fields all over the world have been painstakingly built out from the mountain slope by building rock, mud or straw walls to hold the soil. The soil is then built up through manuring and composting of plant material, leaving soil that is rich for planting.

Without these fields, there would not be enough food for many villages in mountainous regions.
I have walked through many a terraced field, from America to Asia, to Africa. Villagers everywhere are architects of their land.

35. Be

My mother and I have a saying.
“Never be too happy, or too sad.”
I don’t always practice this.... though I try.
“It is not our circumstances that create our discontent or contentment. It is us.”
Vivian Greene

36. Individuality

The irregular blotches on a giraffe’s coat mimic the dappled combination of light and shade that is found in savanna woodlands. Coloration and patterning vary considerably among giraffe subspecies, and to some extent among sex and age classes within populations.
Their markings are individual and are like our fingerprints.

37. Ancient Rhino

Many forms of rhinos existed 40 million years ago. The extinct rhinos varied in their possession and arrangement of horns, but they were large.
Of the five surviving species, two are on the brink of extinction, while the other three are increasingly threatened.
Rhino survival is now dependent on armed protection.
I like to think of rhinos as ancient warriors who have not yet finished their battle to survive.

38. Greatness

There is nothing more grand than an elephant.
I have walked with them across the land, climbed upon their backs when they bathed in the river. I have heard them rumble like motors to communicate to one another.
One of the wisest, most wonderful creatures of our earth.

39. Unbound

When I walk through the city, I wonder how the earth can breath with so much weight upon it. Concrete and vehicles, buildings and glass.
When I go to the country and tromp upon fresh new growth of grass and weeds. They somehow spring back up!
Unless, of course, the path is worn with too many footprints. Then the earth waits to be unbound.

40. Compassion

The more we learn about the life of other cultures, of other people just like us but without the freedom to be who they need to be, the sooner we will understand ourselves.
How can we have compassion for another if we do not have compassion for our self?
