Seattle's skyline glows, as the Emerald City should, in the gentle sunset of early twilight.
The sights and sounds of the city, which are obvious and forward when we are in the midst of it, in the streets, fade away to background noise when we are on a sailboat, cruising through the Puget Sound area near the waterfront.
Emerald City Twilight, the artwork, invites us as the viewer to join the people on the sailboat. This is not a work day, this is not a day to do all the chores that build up and need to be taken care of on our day off: this is a day to do nothing but sail on the Sound, concentrate on nothing more than the craft and the breeze, talk about unimportant, trivial things or very important, deep and spiritual things.
Emerald City Twilight shows why it is so important to have representational fine art in our homes and in our lives – because most of the time, we are not on a sailboat on the Puget Sound, doing nothing but sailing on the craft and experiencing the day. Most of the time we ARE in the office cubicle, or writing down the grocery list, or preparing dinner, and when we feel overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of things on our never ending to-do list, we can look up at the artwork and transport ourselves, momentarily, to a place of peace and quiet and tranquility and beauty.
So we stop, and we look at the painting, and we breathe, and we think about being on that boat, just outside the city skyline where everyone else is sitting in office cubicles and writing grocery lists and getting stuck in traffic, and we hover outside all that busyness and simply feel the tranquility of taking time to be quiet.
