OPEN Thurs-Sun 12-4 at 363 Main Street, Bath
10x10Oil on canvas
When I first painted this a couple months ago, it felt like it was missing something. But when I took it out of my pile of tucked-away-for-later canvases, I decided that I like it as it is. Sometimes, all you need to do is step away from something in order to realize it is enough. It is just right. Topsy Farms is a truly special place and the people who keep it are dear to me. They are making magic there and building community. Even during a pandemic. Especially during a pandemic. I’ve met so many people who only know Amherst Island because of Topsy. What a wonderful thing!I took the photo this painting is based on just after I’d decided I was moving home for good. Going back to what mattered. To my family. To the land. To peace. I hope you feel those things in this painting. I hope it makes you want to safely visit our island and this wonderful place.
