From the artist
As Emerson wrote, “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”
The good in our lives, I believe, resides in familiar things. In a path well traveled, foliage changing with the season, or a face we know, there is a wonder. The light in our ordinary days is the beauty we choose to notice and appreciate.
Shared in these paintings is a personal reflection on a local life and a homage to the ties we carry with us.
