Their current stop at Natural Bridge State Park in Virginia is another American treasure to rediscover and celebrate in the arts. Raven hopes to draw attention to this lesser known state park, as it is truly a natural wonder, a national treasure and deserving of national attention.

During this Resurrection season, Friday being 'Good Friday', makes for a marvelous synchronicity of events that captures the spirit of the Raven's American road trip & Pilgrimage.  God is intrinsically wrapped in our American story and marvelously revealed through America's majestic, vast and varied landscapes.

Natural Bridge in Virginia, is an exceptional and spectacular rising rock natural structure, a natural and divine cathedral of sorts.  President Thomas Jefferson said: "It is impossible for the emotions arising from the sublime, to be felt beyond what they are here: so beautiful an arch, so elevated, so light, and springing as it were up to heaven, the rapture of the spectator is really indescribable!"

In these dark and trying times, rediscovering God by reconnecting with the beauty, purity and revelation in nature, can remind Americans where we have come from and to where we need to return, hence Raven's painting 'Natural Connections'.  America in essence needs a spiritual resurrection, to reanimate and strengthen faith so as to persevere through these difficult times, in hopes of a better America tomorrow.
