Talking about landscapes with Tressa Mancini

What I noticed when I looked back towards town was how the clouds had settled into the valley covering everything with a softness that only nature can provide.

I emerged on the other side with a clearer understanding of what goes on underneath my “artistic hood,” so to speak.
