Windows: Places

I've always been very fond of the Beatles' line "There are places I remember" - probably because places are so important to me. I grew up in the country, in a very small town at the foothills of the Catskills: Saugerties, NY, in the Hudson Valley. It's a lovely part of the world, very green, with blue mountains, the Hudson River and the Esopus Creek, small water falls, bluestone quarries, shale cliffs filled with fossils, 17th century stone houses and dry stone walls, rambling Victorian houses and a very old-fashioned main street. It's been wonderful to relive my time in this beautiful place, and other areas of the world I've been fortunate enough to visit, by making collages of them. Color, as usual, is the emotional heart of each piece.
