This Land Is Your Land


40 x 40 in.

This painting is about heritage . . . about “owning” your nativity and claiming the land and the sky as an inheritance that passes from one generation to the next.
As a young daughter surveys the world she was born into, her mother infuses her imagination with tales of ancestors who populated this harsh and desolate, yet beautiful and mysterious environment for centuries before them. Although she explains that no one person can actually possess the land and sky for their own, her daughter understands they are a temporal, shared experience for each generation to inherit and admire; past, present, and future—the land truly is yours and mine
