“The historic parts of the world have a particular charm for me. This goes beyond nostalgia
and longing for the “good old days”. There was, and still is, great merit in the “small is
beautiful” world when people took care of themselves and put things together with their
own hands. It was a world of human scale which also was closer to nature. We need
to move in that direction again.This is a Mennonite buggy parked in front of a drive
shed. The large, black rectangle reminded me of the empty, dark spaces in some
of the abstracts of Mark Rothko. The grain on the ground has provided food for
the cardinals, juncos and song sparrows.”
