New: “Homeland”

I’m sure this isn’t unique to our region, but I’ve heard that people who grew up and live in New England are the most reluctant to relocate, be it for work, school, or any other reason. May be true, may not be. But from my own experience, living out of our six-state region for a couple years, getting back to New England couldn’t happen fast enough. The things you grow up with…the things you see, smell, and feel everyday in the place you call home, aren’t the same anywhere else. I’ve tried paintings scenes from very different parts of the country, and it’s hard. I don’t know these areas as deeply as I know what’s around me, and what I grew up with…largely because these new, distant places aren’t home. “Homeland” 30 x 40.
