George Fischer's therapeutic images of nature exude the serenity that wind and water, earth and sky, shadows and textures offer the soul. Strolling through Ontario's forests, along rivers and around waterfalls, he puts the character of each season into sharp focus. Soft summer grasses, crisp autumn leaves, dazzling winter snow and fragrant spring blooms. Food for the spirit.
Immerse your senses as you walk with George – and find your peace, tranquillity and balance.
A tonic for the emotions and sustenance for the soul, nature is a perfect place to soothe the senses and heal the heart. Winds in the pines, frogs in the ponds, birds on the branches. Rain or shine, storm or calm, the great outdoors brings refreshment, mindfulness and hope.
Under Ontario's Big Sky, George Fischer's artistry introduces ramblers to a new world each season: sunny summer grasses, blazing autumn leaves, sparkling winter snow and delicate spring blooms. His forays into forests and along waters yield inspired images that focus on moments in time. And hold promise of fresh ideas, better balance – even new beginnings.
As you walk with George through Woods & Waters, Visual Therapy in Nature, you'll feel inspired by what is around you. You might strike new connections with your inner self, start mending after a loss – or simply gain new ground on your life's journey. Whatever you need, you'll find your balance.
