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 has similarly relaxing effects on my body, mind and soul. Not long ago I found a research paper that suggests not only does 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.
