appreciating the little things
Aug. 20 – 29, 2020
Walks around the block, perfectly pink sunsets, freshly baked pie, and actually being home to water the plants. Before March 2020, most of us took these simple pleasures for granted — and then, whether we liked it or not, we were forced to embrace them… sourdough bread, anyone? While this new ‘normal’ has caused a rollercoaster of emotions for the entire world, there are silver linings. We’ve slowed down. We’ve discovered how much we love hugs. We’ve given Mother Nature a chance to catch her breath. We’ve taken our dogs for walks, watched the sun set, baked everything, and watched our gardens grow.
This show is filled with 18 small mixed media pieces — both panels and sculptures — that celebrate all of ‘the little things’ I overlooked while being too busy to notice. Tiny people snipped from the pages of old books, explore each of these wonders, marveling at their magnificence. There truly is so much beauty surrounding us all the time, we just have to stop long enough to see it. Here’s to appreciating “the little things”.
