I am doubly proud, indebted,  and more than exhilarated as I make my entry today in this site.  Once more, I taste the goodness of a generous heart to allow me to paint one of her inspiring nature photos entitled  ”ENDLESS WATERFALLS”.

There are millions of artworks out there, but a knowledge about the artist, a personal encounter, and a developing connection, makes that art more  meaningful and valuable.

She is one of the few earth-keepers, who has a passion to save and protect nature and the environment.  Her works of art expose us to the gentle and the beautiful yet so vulnerable earth and life within.

She takes delight in small creatures like birds and butterflies, reaching  out to feel and exalt in the beauty that is around her.  Her reverence for life and creation, honors God who created the heavens and the earth.

The artist in her, notices the changing hues, shapes, textures, and fleeting lights that passes her horizon. “One day the valley looks calm and serene whereas  another day the clouds create an ominous approaching drama as they roll over the mountains.”

Meet Lara Ellis…a dear friend, a wonderful, kind, and beautiful woman, a worthy citizen of this world we live in.

Born in 1969 in Laguna Beach, California, USA, she now lives  in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia in the Shenandoah Valley with her husband where she has been photographing nature scenes for the past 17 years.

Her works have been published in the 2011 Farmers & Merchant’s Bank  Calendar. She won 1st place in the 2007 Chincoteague Bay Trail’s End Photo Contest and Second and  an honorable mention in the 2006 Shenandoah Audubon Photo Contest.
