The excerpt inscribed in the painting reads:

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk...
I go up to the stone wall for a friendly visit

Some landscapes—and we're talking about the ones you can actually stand in—can be harsh and unwelcoming, and some can be the kind of environment that suits you, lets you know you belong. This one is lush and abundant—even the sky is a benevolent shade that feels cool yet bright, and in it, there is “time to talk.”

NOTE: the full poem reads:

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.

MY ARTIST STATEMENT—painting is a daily exercise for me, as I continue to discover ways to express myself through art. As an assemblage artist, exploring this medium opens up a different portal, so to speak. Different textures, colors, shapes, and even sounds, emerge with each new piece. My goal is to create work that represents how I see the world around me, and at the same time, work that others can bring into their own surroundings and attach to it their own interpretation.
