I am so excited and grateful to have made this connection at Pendle Hill...and when they said they were looking for an artist to feature trees and spirituality--it felt like a perfect fit. If you've ever wanted to check out Pendle Hill--the gorgeous restorative quaker retreat--now is your chance!
Here is my artist statement for the exhibit: “When I paint trees something in me is quieted down, and I can hear a message about light and darkness, a message about balance, a message about being fully present to change and growth. I am reminded to be grounded and reaching toward the light. When I study a woodland scene I am reminded that like a forest, death and new life are alongside each other. I am reminded that imperfections are part of the beauty. I embrace the asymmetry, the leaning, the scars, and the letting go. I look for the light moving in unexpected ways. Following the seasons, I’m reminded to let go, begin again, be patient and feel the joy and pain of this moment, knowing it is moving and changing. Painting woodland scenes, paths, rivers, streams, I’m reminded that right here in this present moment is where peace dwells.” ~ Bronwen Mayer Henry
