HEAVEN IS UNDERFOOT

Henry David Thoreau said, “Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” Though I prefer presence to transcendence, I appreciate Thoreau’s elevation of the mundane. In the same spirit, I have composed these paintings with the colors and visual rhythms of plants in my backyard.
