Beauty Beyond Borders

Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society requested that I do a painting demonstration as part of their Speaker Series. I chose to do a sunset lake scene. We rehearsed with the moderator a couple weeks before the event. All went well. Half an hour before showtime, we set up and discovered our main camera would not function. My dear hubby agreed to be the camera arm for the webcam for 45 minutes. Not easy, but somewhat doable. I demonstrated the best I could for the 700 people attending. However, my demonstration was not the most important part of the event. We asked the participants if they would share one beautiful place in nature and type their experiences in the webinar chat box. The answers they gave were so astoundingly beautiful, far surpassing any painting demonstration that I could do. Stunning beauty from around the world wove a beautiful tapestry that blanketed everyone’s imaginations with peace and awestruck wonder. Everyone’s sharing went far beyond to a place where no camera was necessary.
