Celebrating the new and expanded edition of
True Nature: An Illustrated Journal of Four Seasons in Solitude
by Barbara Bash

In this colorful illustrated journal, artist and writer Barbara Bash has re-created her chronicles of meditation and contemplative wandering during a series of solitary country retreats. Combining handwritten notes with watercolor and pencil drawings, she captures those moments of magic in the natural world:a dragonfly's brief pause, a surprised deer, a lumbering skunk's visit, the darkening woods.

For this new paperback edition Barbara has added 16 pages of drawing exercises, utilizing the principles of heaven, earth and human in a fresh approach to nature journaling.
