Trillium, Hepatica, Yellow Trout Lily,
Dutchman’s Breeches, Bloodroot,
Twinflower, Milkweed, Bogbean…
oh , and Morel mushrooms.
These are the words – names I have learned during my stay in Good Hart. The names are tied to the images, and bring to mind all the hiking, walking and biking I have done while in the Residency Program.
I have collected them, the bright images of natural beauty, like I have collected the rocks from nearby beaches, the Petoskey stone, and the white birch bark in the shape of a crown.
I will treasure my collection and the memory of this unique place.
… All of that, of course, has been reflected in my art.
Thank you for this time and the precious names – images of nature that I am so lucky to take back with me.
