    In both music and painting, classic rural themes have a way of touching a chord deep within. I love the interplay of spring calves and their mothers on this little farm north of town. The warmth of the early morning light across the forms colors our mood, and memories. The idyllic still exists.

    This painting struck me as part of the Hudson River Valley School of Painting. I love the warmth, lighting, and symmetry in this new version of an early American, standard subject. Lovely job.


    Love the effect of light. Brings meaning to the title of your painting.
