We have lived in this house for four years now.
Facing south where the ground falls away, I built a rounded terrace, somewhere I could sit outside for lunch on summer days.
While adjusting to a new studio, for my amusement, I painted a small gouache of the terrace along with the apple trees and the new steps. I tucked it in a drawer for a while.
I've had it framed to show at the May 5 Show. Somehow the unimportant pieces have a way of lasting - there is something in the personal identification with our seemingly casual observations that are not at all casual - they are deep and abiding.
