Leaving Townshend

Piece description from the artist

A philosopher asked Saint Anthony: " Father , how can you be enthusiastic when the comfort of books has been taken away from you?" And Anthony replied: " My book, O philosopher , is the nature of created things, and whenever I want to read the word of God, it is right in front of me."
To me God is in "the nature of created things" and in painting nature I am trying to capture a glimpse of the Spirit.
This painting is a morning view of the West River valley in Townshend, Vermont.
