One of the richest motifs in the visual arts has been the open window.  In 2009, I completed 20 paintings in acrylic on canvas using the window motif to celebrate life and the seasons on the Canadian Prairies.

Each painting combines landscape as seen through a window and still life with a table and background of seasonal images and colours. I also included narrative consisting of phrases or lines of my poetry as I consider this work a somewhat romanticized view  of life. To further this concept, I used gold and silver leaf and titled the series "Once Upon a Season".

I hope this work stirs the senses and invokes happy memories of life, time and place.  In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, New York, held an exhibition "Rooms With a View: the Open Window in the 19th Century".
