Blue Ridge Parkway Paintings Dawn Richerson Natural PersuasionNATURAL PERSUASION PAINTING SERIES. In my experiences at Virginia's Natural Bridge and other sites nearby, the land revealed ancient messages and the promise of a new harmony for those who walk upon these lands. This gentle revelation was also a quiet reckoning that, in the end, was both balm and blessing.

This is our passage—a passage that can be made only through surrender to the natural persuasion of life itself. These  Soul of Place paintings are part of the Blue Ridge Blessings Collection inspired by beauty, wonder, and mystery of Virginia's Blue Ridge Parkway. Can you hear the call of the land echoing deep within?


What does your soul remember?
What story is alive in you?
