I want to honor this singer-garden architect. That's what my Heart of the Hilltown's project is about=honoring as many people as I can paint who have contributed to the culture here in these communities. It turns out to be pretty much everyone. This is the third year of painting these two hour conversations I require to do these painting. I say that the painting is what happened during the conversation. It is not an attempt to make a photographic representation. It's about the paint, the strokes, movement, colors next to each other. That's what excites me.
