I've always believed in the healing powers of nature. Rocks, a body of water, a desertic landscape, a forest, or even a tree all have similarly relaxing effects on my body, mind and soul. Not long ago I found a research paper that suggests not only being in nature has positive effects on human's humor and well being, but that looking at it does too. It is with this idea in mind that made this selection. Here are some of my favorite natural landscapes in K. Caraccio Collection. I have vivid memories of the first time I saw some of them. Looking at any of these pieces has brought a smile to my face, and still does. I hope it has similar effects on you.
