It is spring here, and the tug of seasonal change reminds me of the passage of time. As a romantic, I frequently layer symbolism into my work, and in this new painting, “Twilight Rain”, the Hudson River is a metaphor for time’s flow. A shower at twilight becomes a symbol of life’s fleeting moments and sublime wonder, while the massive bulk of Storm King and nearby Breakneck Ridge suggest stability in a changing world.
This painting will be shown for the first time at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, 9-12 Vassar St, Poughkeepsie, NY, as part of a June exhibition. An opening reception will take place Friday, June 7, 2019 from 5-8 PM. Regular gallery hours are Mon-Sat 1-5 PM, and the show runs through June 30.
