Early Spring
Egg Tempera
31 x 31 inches

Spring houses and smoke houses dot the landscape of Pennsylvania, remnants of a time long past when people were much more self reliant than most people are today. Thinking about the activities that took place within these structures can place an individual into a virtual time warp into the past. This particular structure served the family of one of the oldest residencies in the area of the artist’s home. Sadly, it has become the victim of the unfortunate development that continues to accelerate, robbing future generations of these visual gems. After another brutal winter, this “Early Spring” is welcoming in that same time of the year.
