Homage to Cambria

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

The yellow rose and its companion bud are from life, and I see their beauty and intense color as the painting's focal point. The background is from my imagination, but many viewers think it representational. Of course, what one viewer "sees" as the reality being represented often differs substantially from the reality "seen" by another.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind.

There are flowers everywhere for people who want to see them.

​often attributed to Honoré Balzac as a translation of words he wrote in French

Does not this comprehend all, in fact? . . . A little garden in which to walk, and immensity in which to dream. At one's feet that which can be cultivated and plucked; over head that which one can study and meditate upon: some flowers on earth, and all the stars in the sky. Victor Hugo Les Misérables trans. 1887 –– Isabel F. Hapgood
