While visiting the Shaker Museum I saw all the simplistic and beautiful things the Shakers had made with their own hands. These truly were inspired by their religious beliefs. They didn't however believe in creating new families. My painting is about just that the love of carry on and having a family. A simple belief that we are given and sharing that love. The roots of the tree represent past generations for a tree has no strength without roots.

I painted Famille as a tribute to the Warner family and how they carried on through the years going back to the 1600's in America. The table the vase and flowers sits on if from the 1830's and was from my great great grandparents. The vase was once used as a oil lamp and has been around since the 1830's as well. The flowers are in a heart shape and the title says it all with a heart the word famille a heart and.... If you have love and family you have love forever.

Back in 1979 I took the shortcut from Westport , NY to Essex, NY on Lakeshore Road. At the top of the hill was a breathtaking view of Lake Champlain. As I entered the historic town of Essex a dog blocked the road and honking my horn he reluctantly moved. There I found my self at a classic americana location on this warm August afternoon. I was also desperately needing gas and now thankful to the dog in the road who stopped me from missing this location. So here I painted the Old Essex Garage with the classic Dr. Pepper Soda machine and my 1977 Ford f-100 that I drove that day. The old dog kept going otherwise it would have been in the picture too!
