Artist's statement:
“When I read the poem, I was struck by the feeling of nostalgia—the sense of remembered memories and feeling: knowing feelings are fleeting in time, noticed in a moment—and then changed in the next moment. I am drawn to nature for comfort and there is a feeling of comfort in the poem. I tried to convey feelings through the use of light and line. The line in my print says—go look here—the way memory asks us to look in a certain direction. I was also drawn to the image of snow and wanted the image to be ambivalent in that the light could be snow or light on water or light on rocks—letting the viewer make meaning from the image.”
