Sarah Flohr, Trade Wind, Oil on canvas, 12″ x 36″, 2016
The path of painting is narrow but its destinations are wide and expansive.
By nature, the points of arrival are really only short stopovers—a break in the journey—where one usually is never invited to revisit but shuttled away onto the next narrow path.
One travels the path with a background longing for the open and wide space—that the vista will reveal itself for a scant moment—the brief slice of time of which all paintings dream.
