From a description of the work of American artist Grant Wood:
“very often people see something in it that reminds them of themselves”
I love to look at the Grant Wood print that is hanging in my gallery. The print is called “Spring in Town”. I often like to look at this print and see where i fit in, see what I am doing today, see how I can be all or perhaps nothing of what is in the scene.
I learn about myself from the reflections of myself that I see on a daily basis. From this learning I can choose to adapt, change, keep or discard, re-write, edit or record. Knowing and implementing choice can sometimes be challenging but as the young gardener in my print I am cultivating and from that cultivation the seeds I sow can be fallow or dry and others can flourish and blossom. In order for the garden to grow it must first be cultivated. Learning from the reflections of myself is a part of how I cultivate who I am.
Today I will look for the reflections of myself.
