Green Mountains, stained glass mosaic on board (framed), 37.5" x 37.5" ~SOLD
For a long time I've been on a quest to find my perfect landscape. My mind imagined what my heart asked for, a place where my soul could dance.
I grew up in various urban and suburban environments with limited access to the outdoors. But as an adult I began to follow that inner compass that would lead me to those places where I could be more in touch with nature. That's one of the reasons I love going on new hikes so much. Will I find the new places that I've imagined?
|On the Camel's Hump Trail in Vermont |
In my mid 20's I took the plunge, said goodbye to life in Brooklyn and booked it for Vermont - the Green Mountain State!

This was a perfect opportunity to find the mountains I've dreamt of and
to walk all over them, to look at the incredible fauna close up, to
admire the alpine plants near the peaks and to breath in the vast view
of the endless mountains getting lost in the distance, blending in with
the sky that is so much bigger than all the mountains combined. Living
in Vermont, I fell in love with the vivid, lively Green Mountains that
the state is known for.

Eventually life took me to Colorado where I actually created this piece in the first few months that I was settling to my life in Boulder. Vermont and its mountains lingered in my mind and in my heart and I wanted to pay tribute to those ancient formations that offer everything from rugged, rocky forests to alpine peaks. This is a special place where I feel that I came alive after beginning to feel like I was shrinking in the big, bustling, beautiful city that is Brooklyn.

Sometimes, we need more room to spread out, to stretch our legs and to walk for miles and miles to a place like the landscape in my mosaic where we may feel small but we also feel mighty because we are among mother natures most beautiful creations and we got there on our own two feet.

I combined what inspired me and
what I love about the mountains into this glass landscape. This can be
anywhere, not just a top Camel's Hump in the magical little pocket of
the US that is Vermont. I hope that it evokes the feelings of love and
wonder that I have for our beautiful planet and that it inspires others
to care for our mountains and forests, to explore them and to leave them
as they found them while only taking away good memories.
