'' features works created during my first year living and working in the Litchfield hills. After 40 years of day tripping up north, I finally picked up and moved, lock, stock and barrel, last fall.
This landscape has always resonated with me, but living here is a different experience
than simply visiting. I've devoted time this year to walking the land, looking closely, 
and slowly assimilating what I see and experience.
