It is the stuff of memories – a childhood spent in the country, wandering through the fields and the meadows around one’s home.
And because a child is very small, the field that we view as an adult as a not unmanageable size for walking through is simply enormous, and the very act of walking from the river – located between the blazing orange trees and the embracing hills – is a grand adventure, one filled with dragons and wizards, or lions and tigers.
Effervescence, the artwork, invites the viewer into the life and mind of a child, walking in the warm sunlight of a country autumn day. There is nothing of any pressing need to be done, except perhaps keeping the hat from blowing off in a slight breeze, and the child is free to dream, to daydream, to imagine and pretend.
This is an aspect of childhood that is eminently normal and necessary, but too often, the child of “modern” day is scheduled out of her mind: for dance lessons, and piano, and sports, maybe even acting so she can learn how to pretend to walk through a country meadow.
The child of today, even those who live in the country, have little time – even during the summer when freed from the shackles and confines of public school – to simply do nothing, as we adults put it – nothing to us meaning that no useful activity, promoting commerce and business, has been accomplished.
Effervescence is a reminder to us tired, overworked adults that there is a grand, beautiful world out there – blazing with color from the autumn trees and that deep, mysterious blue sky that only shows its face in the fall. Effervescence invites us to step back into the days of our childhood and truly do something of value – by doing nothing now and then.
Featured in 30 Fine Art America groups.
(Effervescence takes place in rural Eastern Washington, where hills and farms, meadows and forests congregate.)
