Meadowland

Meadowland

Spring rains are a recurring reminder of renewal: the greening foliage tells us that the cycle of life always includes a new beginning. When I first visited Yosemite National Park in California, a spring rain had just passed through the valley and I experienced this renewal visually. As the low clouds began to clear, the trees began to sparkle with light from the sun that peeked through. I saw patches of a bright blue sky behind the clouds; from the granite cliffs I heard and saw one of Yosemite’s many waterfalls. Stretched out before me and serving as a visual path to the cliffs was a huge meadow that appeared to glow with warm light, alive with texture and movement from a gentle breeze. The movement of the meadow's grasses, the way they reflected the emerging sunlight, spoke to me of life’s vitality and ongoing cycle of new beginnings.

This first version of this mixed-media painting of a rain-soaked meadow at Yosemite National Park in California was exhibited at the 18th Annual Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) Member Show in the summer of 2009. The DVAC gallery is located in downtown Dayton, Ohio at 118 N. Jefferson St, one block east of the Victoria Theatre and Schuster Center.
