"Texture is the most enduring and ubiquitous underpinning of form... certainly a calming, meditative and appealing world for both the eye and mind." - Lynda Lehmann quoted at Painters Keys. I present this quote because it says what I want to say about this gallery. Moss, bark and lichen create a feast of color and texture for the eye to revel in. Here you will find intriguing living surfaces of all kinds, from tree bark to sand patterns, to formations in stone. I hope you will be absorbed in their tactile, sensuous qualities and want to feast your eyes on the DETAILS of beauty in both created images and in life. By \"living surface\" I don\'t mean that an object is necessarily organic, but that it has a dynamism and changing countenance that directly reflects or otherwise just resembles, life process.
